Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 MORE INFO >>>


This is a sport climbing route with a series of steep bulges with a few harder moves on each one of them. There is easier climbing in between.


The route is to the left where the trail first joins the cliff. Look for two pine trees on a ledge above a right-facing corner. The route is just right of the corner and goes along the right edge of a large, orange rock scar on the face from a dearly departed flake. The route lines in the recent "The Voo" guide are not quite correct.


10 bolts, double bolt belay anchor. Beware of loose rock on the rappel ledge, and 3 very large loose blocks precariously perched on top of each on the east end of the rappel ledge.

The rappel is 90'. A single 60m rope makes it with a little to spare.
