mixed route. Three bolts.

On the left end of the wide west face is an obvious crack, with a wide water groove running up the slab to it, that's it.

Despite the name, do not think of this as a beginner's climb, and especially not a beginner's lead. There are some cruxy sections, and protection is not always obvious or easy to place.

Near the right-end of the upper part of the west-face there is an obvious crack. This climb goes up ramps and slabs to this crack (generally easy ground) then up the crack itself. It is a nice hand-crack, that takes fine pro in the steeper section.
