Instead of going down towards the waterfall, follow the rock to the right. There you will find a couple of bolted routes. This is the first one. Starts out with a nice roof that you have to pull for the first crux, then leads you up to a ledge. From here stay to the left of the arete and pull out on top of it to get to the second ledge. Follow the ledge to the right to the dihedral. Here is the hardest part of the climb where you can either choose to do a very crimpy face climb to the top (15ft) or use the dihedral and turn the last part of the climb into a fun stemmy finish to the top. The anchors are on the top ledge.

4 out of 5 stars Fun with Options!

Climbed before a couple of times, this is the last time I could remember. A good challenging climb that can be used as a warm-up, a training session, or a first timer into. Has killer surroundings, nice area to belay, and can see the waterfall across the valley.
