START: Start just right of the north most oak tree and go diagonally left up to first ring bolt. ROUTE: Climb left to first clip....straight up to left of “drill strike” through a left facing corner system to a 2’ overhang with a left facing corner capped by a large 3’ overhang. up the corner to a stem...reaching with faith to the bucket in heaven. Up to three oaks over lip. A lay back right to a “hip scum” with a stem makes this a piece of cake that many a cadet fails to eat.

Descent Options:

Double Rap from top. Sport Biners.

4 out of 5 stars did it twice!

a fun route...the old ring bolts are a little disconcerting but the sport biners on top are great!
