This climbs the overhang just to the left of Mister Easy. While it looks steep and hard, it is littered with huge holds. Start to the left of a tree and climb slabs until you get to a short vertical section. This can be climbed in many places, but the most common is in a small (4 foot) open book section. Once you have gotten to the ledge under the roof, you will climb straight up on positive edges right by a column that you can wrap your whole arm or leg around Be careful not to drift too far left since the rock to the left is loose even for Capen Park .
