Description:

Around the corner left of "Two Tone Zepher" is a shallow diheidral up about 15' high with a crack in the middle of it. Climb the crack on the right side of the face up to the diheidral then straight up to the chains. Good trad lead. 5.8- should be 5.7

3 out of 5 stars Skunkweed

Its a pretty easy climb. It would probibly be a more worthwhile climb if you climb it trad. Still a sweet climb.

4 out of 5 stars Bats

The guidebook states that the crack accomadates flying mammals aka bats. They were definitely in there.
