Don't think this is quite 30 feet.

Very short but it's really fun. It's a good route to learn how to clean anchors because of the huge ledge at the top.

...or 25 feet Can I get an 18!

a little harder than one would expect. there are about 4 anchors at ground level to the left up the hill which is even a better place to teach people how to clean anchors!

I thought it was a bit hard, but then again I love big slightly overhanging juggy stuff and not crimpy and slabby like this.

Im not sure if im just too weak from 2 months bed rest due to a kidney surgery but i've done 10's that were easier than this climb. Great face climbing, very crimpy, but well worth it.
