Starts in the middle of a low-angle buttress that looks like broken rock for the first 30 feet or so. 5 feet right of a large, peeling-bark yellow birch tree. Look for the 2.5 foot "roof" about mid-height. The climb surmounts two flakes, another 20 feet of easier terrain before it hits the "roof." Climb the roof up the left side on decent holds to a thin crack. Live in the thin crack to the top (2 bolt anchor).

4 out of 5 stars Nice route

The first 30 feet are nothing to write home about, but the top section, from the roof on up, is great.

This was a fun climb, especially since it earned us a view of the lake and cannon mtn. Amanda and John followed with ease, then Gunther showed up and followed, too.
