BETA PHOTO: looking down from the bolt anchors halfway up.


Mega classic route. Great slab climbing, perfect to cruise it on hot summer day.


This route starts in the middle of the main face. Go up 10 feet or so, traverse right on slab 20 ft and go up to first anchor.


Small nuts in first pitch. 2 big stoppers in the roof at the top of 2nd pitch.

Craig's crack is the first pitch described. It goes at 5.5R. The roof is the upper portion of Black Tide (5.7X).

The clump of trees that this route starts next to (just next to the belayer in the photo) have uprooted and fallen over. The route now has a large, convenient, white spot where the trees used to be marking the start.
