A short little climb that can be found on the face of the Shipwreck Wall facing the Crooked River. If this climb were longer it would receive more attention, but it is over just as you get started.
The climb moves up into a right facing corner off the ground. From there use face holds on the left face to move left onto a face with nice edges and crimps where you will once again find yourself in a right facing corner. For some reason moving left away from the crack was hard to do at first, I guess that thin seam in the right corner called our name. Don't fall for it, say low-ish and move left rocking over onto the face. Keep moving up staying close to the arete on your right before moving above a very mini-bulge to the anchor. Plenty of fun holds and movement on this route, you'll just wish it was longer.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
