Ali on "We The People".  Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble.  Lemon Peel and Bonsai. <br /> <br />Lemon Peel was developed only a month or so before this photo according to comments on the West Side main page.  It was a little dirty in spots, but not bad for being so new.  I drew this topo showing Lemon Peel sharing the first bolt of Bonsai, but neither climb really needs that bolt as the climbing is 4th/5th class through the gully.  If you do clip it, put a runner on it.  Just above and right of the crux (between bolt 8 and 9), there is a ledge with a tree on it that you do not want to grab unless you want a face full of dirt.  Avoid it by staying left on the face to a nice little ledge at the next bolt then mantel up to the next clean ledge.  I'd say this line comes in at 10c but is not at all sustained with good resting positions.  Hotness, Finding Forester and Vertical Alluvium at the south end of the West Side.  The fixed rope coming down from campsite 21 is just to the left of this picture.  Lemon Reservoir West Side.
