Description:

Short and fun. I'm just talking about the first pitch. It get's much harder higher up. 15 feet to the right of Chocolate Corner, you'll see a mostly straight-in mostly-handish crack. It's surprisingly akward, but the jams are good and the moves are fun. Varied sizes. Don't TR. The grooves in the rock testify to it's popularity, and are a good reason to belay from the anchors rather than slingshot TR.

Really interesting. The pod with dbl crack was totally weird, but fun.

5 out of 5 stars Deceiving angle

Looked less that vertical with plenty of face holds. However, the climbing felt steep and dirty.
