Description:

Start by either traversing in from the left, or climb the face on the right side of the wall (5.11 R) angling up and left to a ledge . Scammper out the short and somewhat loose roof, then enjoy the splitter crack. Most folks stop at the anchor bellow the roof at the top of the wall - the FA party went out it.

4 out of 5 stars pretty damn good

like this one.. tried to place mid crux and didn't have the strength so I just climbed through to the chains. Nice crack/sport style and ramps you up for the harder stuff around.

4 out of 5 stars splitter!

beautiful seeming-splitter up top is not as straightforward as it looks! one hang, toprope.

some mostly-solid mud under the roof masquerading as flakes, and a toaster sized block just above the lip that I will swear moved when I pulled on it. tell your belayer not to stand under you.
