At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving.

Please proceed with caution though. More details.

8m. This route takes the slim wall between Otak and Rite Root. Start just left of the groove of Rite Root, and climb up on good holds to a thread runner on the left (not in-situ). A committing move gains good holds and gear; another reachy move leads to easy ground and a tree.
