High Test is probably the best line on the Forbidden Fruit Block and definitely worth doing. The route faces almost directly south and so is usually in the sun, it is also often open when the rest of the park is crowded.


This is currently the third route in from the left of the formation. The route begins just right of the left facing corner that is to the left of the crack which splits the entire formation. (The bolt line can actually be seen in the included photo if enlarged.) The route continues straight up the face and skirts the roof in the photo on the right hand side. The chains are just over the roof.


The protection consists of 6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
