Description:

This curved, narrow, and slightly sloped face has many inviting features, but almost none to use. Tricky work, and no room off the path for a belayer; but you can always get back to the easy gully crack. Maple tree rubs onto top part.

3 out of 5 stars Good route.

Did not completely complete, the top crack doesn't finish for me; but getting there was quite fun, as it looks from the ground. We stayed on the straight-up line with no use of the wall at the left. Variations to left, much harder to the right. Belay can be off the trail, so will be recommended. We rigged from both pine trees to go over the straight edge.

3 out of 5 stars (Not) Too old to R&R

Lots of options here. Watch for loose rocks! We had one climber launch a toaster oven at her belayer.
