The right-leaning crack system between the sport routes. Face climb directly up to the crack with marginal horizontal pieces and a clutch tiny cam (00/000) for pro. Sink that first "real" piece and cruise to the top on solid iron jugs, good pro, and unexpectedly fun moves. You can also take the more rational way up and climb the nice crack start on the first couple bolts of Mule. Stays dry in rain except for the mercifully casual mud gully awaiting up top.
Moves: unknown
Descent: Rap from tree
Stays Dry: Light rain

If the 5.12 wall is busy, give people around the base a heads up for the falling detritus which can be expected during the next few ascents (between now and 2030). Starting on Mule would probably eliminate most of the runout-ness in the first 30 feet. Good rock on this thing but definitely some dirt.

First and Last Ascent? Perhaps there was a reason people walked by all of these shitty lines for 40 years or so and never did them. 3 stars? if this line gets 3 stars, rock wars is 8

Actually, the rock is solid and the moves are really fun. 3/5 of Rock Wars is fair.
