|Renaissance Crag (AKA Rattlesnake Canyon Crag)
Face climb up broken cracks and ledges, dodging the bushes and gradually moving to the right. Catch your breadth in a bowl-shaped alcove before tackling the steep headwall above. The overhanging section proves surprisingly easy. The actual crux comes just below the chains.
Cupcakes & Champagne is situated at the toe of a gigantic cliff band that is located just downstream and across the creek from the Renaissance Crag. This cliff is home to the historic route "Fun in the Sun" by Forkash & Anderson. For more details, visit here

Mostly scrambling with a few boulder problems thrown in. Lots of bad rock. The bulge may as well be easy if you can commit to pulling on questionable jugs. I avoided those altogether and used the slopers, but my partner broke off a hold and fell. The top felt easier than 5.9+ but maybe I was just happy to be on better rock. Helmet highly recommended, especially for the belayer!
