As the crow flies

An easy (for the grade) sport lead. Work your way up the 4th class ledges on the right. This gets you off of the main trail and the dirt up onto some cleaner rock that is better to lay you gear out on.

Start up a friction face on the left with two bolts, follow the bolts up to a ledge at the top of the face. Move right around the corner to clip the third bolt, then a safe cruxy move right, the bolt is still over your head. Work your way right up a flake with extremely good hands. Then left toward the 4th bolt. Very positive hands on top of a big flake all the way to the 4th bolt. At the top head left toward a small ledge that you can stand on to reach the top. An easy mantle up to a very good belay ledge with rap rings.
