A fun way to gain the routes on the upper ledge and a nice route on its own as well.

Start on a few tricky moves involving a few holds that aren't as clean as some might like. After this you get in to some clean rock with weird but fun moves for 15 feet or so and on to easier rock to the 2 bolt anchor.

From this belay you can climb the 5.11s above, Charity Toad which is an easy traverse right to gain White Toads last pitch, or you can head left to Wendell's Route and a few others.


30 feet or so left of the corner of White Toad look for a cleaned off section of rock (but not too clean as there is dirt and moss on both sides) that opens up to be nice and clean up higher.


8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Worthy route in its own right but we used it today to do Charity Toad which is GREAT! This one was a bit wet but we're excited to get back on it when it's completely dry. We found you can make it harder than it really is if you don't find some jugs which seemed hidden.

I think this is super fun for the grade. I love the tricky slab, it has a cool semi-hidden hold and a very useful heel hook. Much better than it looks from the ground

J Meagher: at the top of this one, traverse right past two bolts to an anchor and nice belay ledge. Finish up the 3rd pitch of White Toad (5.8) -- it's a real nice continuation.

Cool. Got to try that next time. I've only gone straight up and to the left.
