Description:

Great for beginner trad climbers looking to increase their confidence. Immediately to the right of Leisure Time, this crack features solid hand and footholds for the majority of the climb. Straight up to the huge roof, then traverse left to cold shuts. Beware of possibly unstable horizontal slabs. I cleaned this crack out because it looked great, and a lot more moderate than many of the bolted routes here. Matt the Marine, who climbs alot harder than me, followed on the first ascent. Thanks to For the comments on the route.

Descent Options:

use cold shuts at the top of Leisure Time

3 out of 5 stars First ascent

I cleaned this crack in the corner out because it looked like it had been overlooked. Rightly so, there are some amazing bolted routes on this cliff. A Marine named Matt was patient enough to belay me while I cleaned and climbed. Yes it was hot, but he brought me here in the summer so I didn't know any different. I cleaned it alot better after that. Overall a fun little route to warm up on or test gear placement skills. Thank you "boredwolf" for the route description and review.
