Deb on P1.
MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This is an okay line that has a good first pitch and an "eh" 2nd pitch. There is an optional section on P1 that can up it to 5.8+ R. It's not completely clear yet if this is distinct from one of Wayne Roy's new lines. The optional bit, though, is new and still crunches.

P1. Start up behind a tree quite close to the rock. Angle left and eventually gain a crack probably 20 feet up. Follow this crack until it peters out. Then, you have a choice. Going right is easier, probably 5.7 PG-13. Going left is probably no-fall terrain and still gritty, althought it does call out to be climbed. Continue up on easier terrain to a ledge and a tree. 5.7 PG-13 or 5.8+ R, 200'.

P2. This is the "get to the top pitch" as you go up moderate terrain in a groove than becomes a crack. Top out the ridge, move slightly right, downclimb 10' to the gully. 5.6, 100'.

Walk down the gully.


Location 

This is probably 80 feet left of Georgia Style and starts just behind a tree that is close to the base. There is a line that goes up to a bolt just a bit to the right.


Protection 

Wireds, cams tiny to #1 Camalot.
