Greg leading the 1st pitch


Locate the bolts and weave your way up around and over the mammalian protruberences. Belay at anchors. Pitch two starts off going right, then heads up and left. You can hook up with either route to the left or right and top out if you wish. After the second pitch, like most Stone routes, the going gets monotonous.


From the ground, between Orange Blossom and Grand Funk Railroad. Pretend you are tripping and look for giant "boobs" in the rock.


6 draws should be plenty. If you want to top out a light rack couldn't hurt.

The first 2 pitches can and often have been done as one long classic pitch.

Climbed it in 2000, I thought that just getting off the ground for the first 15 ft was perhaps the crux. Pretty well bolted for a stone route.

Excellent route! Link 1st 2 pitches, as nbrown states, for full value. The route wanders a bit but follow the path of least resistance around the bulges. Dries pretty quickly, even if you see water near the top, the route stays left of that. Pretty well protected for Stone but I would not like to fall at a few spots because the fall would not be your typical Stone "slide".
