Rock (Trad) (Toprope)
We chose to top rope this time and as I haven't lead it yet I can't recommend specific gear, but I would take a standard rack from .5 - 4 or 5 camalots, hexes, nuts, and slings/webbing for the anchor.

Take this climb with a grain of salt as I haven't lead it and only climbed it on TR. Though most of the climb is easier the offwidth at the top could give you some problems on lead so I feel a 5.8 rating is appropriate. Be very confident at the grade as this is soft sandstone so gear can never be completely trusted. Located 15ft left of Swiss Chesse. It is the crack in the corner leading to an offwidth to the right of an overhanging roof. Climb up the hand crack to the ledge. Continue up an offwidth crack to the top. Belay off trees.

3 out of 5 stars Decent Climb when Swiss Cheese is taken

Climbed this one with Casey a long while back. As far as I know he has the first ascent.
