Best as a top rope problem, but it can be led with gear up to 2.5 inches.

Description:

Follows a series of cracks and weaknesses up the North facing face on right, away from the other routes. A few stretches of interesting climbing broken up with ledge scrambling. The climb starts with an short face problem to a large ledge (easy avoided by scrambling to the left). Next is a left leaning finger crack in a right facing dihedral. After some more scrambling there is a thin face up to a recessed bucket followed by more scrambling. The final face leads up to a pair of bolts set back from the edge.

Descent Options:

Rap or scramble. Bolted anchor can be reached by a trail to the right or from the parking lot behind the wall.

3 out of 5 stars Inconsistant but interesting

Good beginner route, has short stretches of both crack and face climbing. Can be led on gear - pro is solid but infrequent. I placed a #3 TCU in the first crack, a BD #2 or 3 in the horizontal crack below the thin face slab, and a #2 TCU somewhere up high. It didn't feel runout, but that's 3 pieces in just under 100'
