Kristin enjoying this classic line.


Start on an easy corner and continue up the rounded arete to a ledge then move right and continue up the sloping holds to the anchor.

This climb is a must do for the warming up 5.10 climber.


Left facing corner on left elevated portion of Orange Oswald Wall.


Many bolts(10ish) to Anchor

I put up this route one weekend with a sore tendon while all my friends were climbing. It just looked like a great beginning climb with great moves and good holds. The name comes from a beautiful young hippie girl that offered support while I was cleaning the route. Absolutely gorgeous and kind she was. Thus, the name. Hope you enjoy it.
