Comments: That bowl sounds like where the first bolt of the 2nd pitch is now. This would be maybe 80 feet off the ground. Very interesting.

Comments: Gear: 00 tcu, yellow tcu (or prob 0.4 bd), 0.4 bd, bolts, 2.5 horizontal friend. Then I think a nut of some sort to get you up the easy part to the top

Comments: This is a great, lesser done route with a fair bit of variety. Getting established on the dike is a little bit heady. I seem to remember the first pitch having a few more bolts than are shown on the topo, maybe 4-5? The second pitch climbs to a large tree ledge and the third climbs an easy, left facing dihedral to the top.
