Little Aid Box-- Upstream-facing Wall (5.5-5.6)

The climbing here is rated 5.5-5.6. I climbed the crack just right of center, which felt more like 5.5 than 5.6, though the hardest moves were very short, perhaps making the climb seem easier than its rating might indicate. Near the top, make an effort to stay to the left if you want to keep any challenge to the climb, as the rock to the right is MUCH easier. The coolest part about this climb is getting to stare straight down at the river below.
