Description:

Follow the right leaning crack up to the ledge under the roof. Use the good holds under the roof to traverse around and top out near the tree close to the rocks(this tree makes an excellent rapell spot to get off the blocks).

4 out of 5 stars Trad lead today

Was here last time out but only top-roped as someone we knew already had it set-up. This time on Friday afternoon, no one here so trad lead to orginal route, set-up the top-rope and then did about three variations. The first straight up into the alcove and then out, the second starting right and then trying to move back left at the prow through some bad slopers to good enough holds to dyno for finishing ledge, didn't make this part, but think it could go for strong enough climber. Last variation again goes up right and then when get to roof traverse out right under bush until find some crimpers and slopers good enough to move up on and then move back left to finishing ledge and off. All this after getting in seven new trad routes (new to us anyway) in Darnell Hollow. Good day much better than working...

5 out of 5 stars Trad lead, have also recently top-roped

Scott showed us this route when I was doing a lot of trad leading that year. Onsited it going up through the excellent finger crack on the left to the alcove and then out the roof to the mantle finish. Finger crack and roof take excellent gear, can double up for the roof traverse no problem, mantle is interesting as you are out past gear and a little above, but a fall there would be clean and short.
