Description:

Easy climb, lots of dirt and loose rock. Start at slab in front of Picnic Rock. P1: Climb crack straight up past some crappy rock to the bolt (crux). Work up past some more crappy rock to a ledge on the right (Tango belay). P2: Follow step-like ramp up left to ceiling (large cam), then pull the intimidating but easy hang to the top. A bit unnerving for a 5.6 leader.

3 out of 5 stars Only did first pitch.

Not a ton of fun but a couple good moves. The bolt is nicely placed and gives some piece of mind before the harder moves. Typical crappy Stover rock though.
