Just before the first abseil down little River Gorge there is an obvious corner crack on the south side of the river. Climb the crack until reaching the first ledge. Traverse right and up the smaller crack leading to the second ledge. Again, climb the line to the right, then perform an interesting traverse to the left to top out.

There is potential for climbing the exciting looking direct crack sticking to the left but you may want doubles of mid sized cams for protection.

Walk-off is possible scrambling up to the top of the ridge, traversing right, and descending the correct gullies. Recommend checking it out from the opposite upstream bank before ascending.
