Description:

Start at the green face 40 feet right of Overhanging Layback, and just right of the brushy and perpetually wet bit. Climb up into the left edge of the arch above, and pull through 1st overhang to a stance (5.9-). Continue straight up past a thin, spooky flake to a right facing corner capped with a roof. Undercling right under roof (large cam helpful) and levitate right to a hold by the small tree. (crux, can be A0/A1'd.) Continue up on easier rock to build an anchor directly over difficulties, or angle up right to the fixed anchor. The second pitch is worth doing, goes through a 5.9 roof at a U-shaped notch above

3 out of 5 stars Interesting climb

This is not "G" rated. There is a scary runout on the first pitch. Interesting moves as you exit the second roof.

3 out of 5 stars nice through most of the second pitch

gets a little dirty at the top of p2. the roof at the beginning of that pitch is cool, and a neat feature.
