Fun lieback moves. The crux comes moving around a boulder 2/3 the way up.


There are two obvious lieback routes on this face. The first is Lieback Corner. The second (Charlie Solo) is closer to the waterfall.


Medium to large nuts, cams from 0.5 to 2 in.
Semi-decent 2 bolt anchor at top. Bring long webbing to back up if desired.

Pretty dirty climb. Was a little wet and muddy at places too. The top is very loose unless you do the face move at the top of Greenbo, which is harder than 5.7. Suggest backing up the top bolts (you'll need about 15 feet of webbing), one of the anchors is pretty iffy in my opinion.

One bolt is loose, but there is an optional belay tree to the right of the bolts. Definetly dirty and mossy but lots of fun. Lead mostly with medium to large nuts.

There is a pretty good sized poison oak plant growing to the side but onto the route now.
