A fun route on sandy rock. Plenty of choice for holds and protection, but be cautious to test the quality of the rock. Stakes at top are very helpful!

Oh, and stakes now in situ

Followed Andrew up this. The initial layback flake is strenuous, about 4c I think. Up left and follow the cleaned arete (still sandy) to move left into a cleft and finish. Not as good as Sandpiper, maybe one star enough.
