Slightly overhanging (bulges) right to left leaning crack system. 5.8-75' (ledge and chockstone anchor), 5.7-50', 5.4-60' and walk off or rappell from chains at top of Fowl Play (left of this route). NOT BAD IF YOU PICK THE RIGHT CRACK....AND YOU DON'T GET STUNG!

2 out of 5 stars OK

A little loose and dirty, but not too bad. A cool cave to belay from at the top.

This is a great Trad route that follows a crack system to several ledges on broken quartzite. At the second ledge (top of pitch 1) the chains are to the left. Watch out for loose rock!

Good protection, tricky bulges (don't get sucked into the crack). Fun.
