1) 5a, 22m. Start at a white groove blocked by a large bulge. Climb the groove and traverse left to avoid the roof. From a ledge, climb back right over broken rock and some vegetation to belay in a fine cave.
2) 5a, 18m. Step left and climb the impending wall and shallow scoop to finish over a small roof.

Chossy first pitch with one nice move on the traverse. Necky second pitch with few rests until below the roof.

Very loose rock covered in vegetation as the first pitch tops out. Somewhat spoils and otherwise interesting. Second pitch is great fun, but again, be careful of the loose rock.

Too much choss and vegetation - why bother.
