Quick and Simple!

This is the first rock you see when you walk down the trail, it is the slabby, bulged face with the obvious 20’ "Y” crack; one of the most popular routes at Dixon. At the fork of the climb, there are several variations (including right crack, left crack, or straight up the face). Can be climbed in off-width style by jamming body parts, or even lie-backing on the left side. Beware - eats large pro!
Two bolts at top for anchor. Walk-off to climber's left or just lower from top-rope.

Waaay too short but fun.
