Description 

This is the first route you come to when hiking the approach trail to the cliff. It climbs the obvious black streak up the large slab. It end at a 2-bolt belay at a small tree ledge. Great rock climbing on perfect granite. There is a second pitch that continues up to another ledge and 2-bolt belay. Good friction climbing.


Location 

This route starts at the west end of the cliff. The first sport route one sees when hiking in.


Protection 

Although there are 6 bolts on this route it feels runout. A good calf burner.

maybe you have a long 60 and I have a short 70 but I was just able to make it down with a 70. So 90 feet I think is a bit short. Great route though I really enjoyed it.
