Climb up a white dihedral to an overhanging headwall.


This climb is to the right of the "cave" just right of a tree.

I think this climb deserves more like 4 out of 5 stars due to the quality of the rock, length, variety of movement, and location - a very fun route!

I agree RJ. I would say closer to *****.

If it wasn't for the break in the middle I would go four stars. Still a must do route. Two very different types of climbing before and after the break.

Great route, and my favorite of the harder routes I have done at the Homestead. Be ready for a hard move at the 4th bolt, the hardest move on the route for me. Then a nice rest leads into great overhanging tufa climbing, with multiple cruxes and a few good rests.
