Stuff under 1.5'' and a small piton that's questionable. Anchors at the top shared with North-facing crack climb "Bear's Delight" (5.5).

Fairly crimpy with a few interesting body positions moving left to right and back again. One piton that's probably questionable. Anchors at the top on far left can be easily clipped with a bit of a reach from the top ridge via a great right handed jug. Fall may hurt on this coming down onto lower ledge. This climb is immediately right of Bear's Delight (5.5), sharing the same start on the ledge above Lichen or Leave it. Fun climb.

Descent Options:

Lower off rings.

3 out of 5 stars Fun...maybe a bit sustained.

There's a hold everywhere, just be sure to look. I self-belayed toproped this pitch. Can't wait to get back on with a partner.
