|Flight Path Area
A buttress to the east of other routes described here. Start left of a huge cave, up a pillar to a bolt on the face and across some choss into an alcove -- pull the roof and continue up a crack and varnished plates. I think a second pitch has been done -- not sure about anchors.

We rapped from the two-bolt anchor atop pitch 1 with two 60-meter ropes.

I found this route to be very chossy. Several holds crumbled on me. Maybe it has cleaned up since then? But I wouldn't recommend it.

There used to be some pruned scrub oak at the starting corner. Ignore the first bolt (uncompleted project) and use gear to traverse right out of the corner to a bomb bay alcove in varnish. Pull the easy roof move and clip a bolt. Continue up the crack past 2 or 3 more bolts then traverse left to a 2 bolt anchor. Traversing right on questionable rock takes you to a project anchor.
Second pitch is 5.8 has one bolt and is on "angel food" white sandstone.
Third pitch climbs out of an alcove, move up and right to 2 bolts at a bulge, then follow cracks to the summit. That pitch is about 10b. I remember using a Red Tricam to protect one of 9 moves higher up on this pitch.
