Description:

Lay-back up the crack in the corner. There's a tree-root at the base of the crack, and the start is somewhat polished.

Ethic: inherited from Harrison's Rocks

The Sandstone is very soft -- leading is not allowed. Most climbs are top-roped, and ropes should be extended over the edge and set up in a way such as to minimize the wear on the rock. Top-out and down-climb is preferred to lowering. Abseiling is, also, forbidden.
