Description:

To locate this climb, find a pillar of rock with 3 horizontal cracks in it, leaning against a large face with a finger crack above it. Start up and to the left of the base of the pillar, at this point you are about 5 ft from the top of the pillar. Traverse in to reach the top of the pillar and the start of the crack. Climb the crack to reach the shuts. Great finger locks, great gear, nice view!

5 out of 5 stars Great Route!

This route is locust grove at its best. I like to link it from the right side of the pillar that is mentioned in the description. Adds another 25 ft of easy enjoyable climbing. Great gear and eats tri cams and medium size nuts.
