park several hundred yards past the turn in the approach road, just before the gate. Walk right up through the woods to the clean slab known as the North End. Child's Play is the most obvious crack system going up a little right of the middle of the slab.

Route Description

The crux is right off the ground up to an uncomfotable alcove (5.6). From the alcove continue up over blocks to a large ledge at mid height. Up a crack again, past one rather awkward section (5.6) which is sort of off-width (i got my knee stuck there once) and up to a tree anchor. About 70 feet. Rappelling is by far the easiest method of descent (rap rings usually available)

Essential Gear

normal rack, bring a couple of large Friends.
