3 out of 5 stars Doesn't seem to get much traffic

Followed John Ely up this one. May have done a combo of this and Cherry's Climb for p1. Watch for loose blocks in and around the blocky left facing corner. Saw one the size of an old VCR (for those who remember those things) dangling by one end (didn't dare touch it). Exciting climbing for the grade on the last pitch. Byo rap slings or go for a walk. We did the first 60' rap to a fairly small tree with a totally petrified, lichen-covered cordalette on it. We didn't have a long enough piece of nylon to back it up, so we left a sling. Got to the ground with 70m doubles from there. Very airy free-hanging rap. Don't get snagged in the dead tree halfway down.

Long 1st pitch up a blocky corner. 2nd and 3d pitches pretty short. Two bolts on the third pitch.
