This route starts behind a large pine tree. Pull up and over a roof and work up cracks that are discontinuous. The route moves up and to the left to a two bolt anchor.


This starts just behind a tree and to the right of Get High Street.


Small stoppers and and small to medium cams from blue Alien up to #3 Camalot. You can place a #3 Camalot right off the deck. Bring a few slings to keep the rope running fairly straight. We used a 70m rope, but I'm pretty sure you can get off with a 60m.

The crux of this route is the overhanging start (but it's got a nice soft landing area). Once over the lip, you can sink a #3 Camalot for protection, and the rest of the route is mostly easier climbing. There are not a lot of opportunities for protection, but there are enough and it does not seem run out because you sort of climb over a series of small ledges, as you make your way up the route. Shares anchors with "Get High Street." A 60m rope is long enough to rappel off of from the anchors.
