Description:

The most obvious route on the left side of the crag. Climb the obvious dihedral with three distinct roofs. A single rappel brings you to the ledges about 10' above the ground. Easy downclimbing to the right or down. Be careful pulling your rope, the initial roof on the route is a rope eater- more than one chunk of rope is stuck there.

Not near as good as Skinny Mini, but worth doing as a good warm up before heading to the much better routes (and rock) on the north side. The roof pull is exciting, a wide had jam is required up above to get it clean.

3 out of 5 stars Nice

Fun, gymnastic pitch! Pull ropes over the slab around the left of the arete or they WILL get caught, badly. This crag has a great "locals" feel about it, not the usual RR circus atmosphere. Bring a 4whl drive for the initial approach though.
