4 out of 5 stars X-Y Several Climbs

There are two sets of anchors at the top of this rock. The trail that leads to the top continues up to the J-Y crag. The left veering split on the crack is a 5.7. The second set of anchors host the 5.5 continuance of the main crack to the right. A 5.7 on the face between that and the bolted 5.10 to its left. 4 climbs total here.
