Pitch 1


This is a high quality route that is probably as good as just about anything else at Cedar Rock. The first pitch starts on "Native Dance" before the two lines diverge ("Native Dance" climbs the lower angle left diagonaling crack).

Climb the short easy corner to the easy face. Gear protects the face that leads up to a line of 3 bolts ("Native Dance"). At the 3rd bolt move up and right past an optional shallow #0 TCU (out right) to gain the left facing crackless corner (see picture); plenty of gear is found in the eyebrows. Climb this corner to a 2 bolt anchor just above a flake (hanging belay). 150' 5.10+

Climb up and left past a bolt (crux) to a stance and get gear out right. Move up and right on amazing eyebrows past 2 more bolts and one last cruxy move to gain the easy slab that leads up and right to the same anchor as "Cut In The Rug". 70' 5.11


Start on the far left side of the impressive steep shield of rock that Cut In The Rug climbs - at a short wide right facing corner.


Double rack of cams up to hand size. A few medium stoppers.
