Just left of the "crescent cave," begin in a short, shallow, left-facing corner. Climb the corner and right-slanting crack to a left-slanting crack. Finish up past a green patch to easier rock.

4 out of 5 stars Just go for it.

Not sure if there is a better place to set up a top rope, but I give the route a PG13 rating just because you have to climb part way down the cliff to get to a tree where the rope won't rub too much against the rock as you climb. Also, if you fall too early in the route, be prepared to pendulum to the right.

Very fun route that I am likely to go back and try several more times. Fell several times about half way up (what I would consider the crux) and restarted before just dyno-ing past the troublesome area.

My advice...don't wear yourself out in the first half of the route. Just go for it and make bold moves. There are 2 great places to rest and stretch your fingers about 2/3 of the way up.
