Description:

Just left of Wisecrack, start at a block of boulders with a large dead pine about 20 feet up. Work up slightly left of the waterstreak (one small pod for a cam) and then continue up to a set of tiered right facing blocks (crux, easier if tall). Keep motoring up thru this old school 7 till a welcome exit to a ledge and a set of old chains above you. Second pitch is low angle (fourish) and full of lichen.
