Cool climbing on good pockets and small edges up a near vertical face.


On the right side of the cliff.


Four clips to a two-bolt ring anchor just below a tiny pine tree.

Quite possibly one of the dumbest routes ever bolted. This route is 5.8 if you stem the corner. The approach to this cliff is downright dangerous - this route and the other one on this pile never should have been bolted, and certainly never should have been published. This is not an area where lots of people should be going. The hillside is very steep and loose.

What!?! None of those first two names on the FA would EVER bolt something dumb, contrived, or publish anything just to do so....

This is a great climb... thin and sustained on good rock. It is slightly contrived, since you could stem, but it has very fun moves if you don't....
