One Strike You're Out.

Description 

Just left of the big roof, but still on steep rock, are two routes that share an anchor. Ball Four (5.11) is the right of these and One Strike is the left. One Strike has powerful, steep, run-out climbing that gets more spooky the higher you get. My notes from 1998 indicate some gear might be possible higher up, but I did not record what if anything we did use. It has good stone, nice position, and it is well worth the hump. It would be smart to bring the rack up here or at least a range of small cams.

Half a dozen draws and a rope.

This route is sustained and yet a very doable 12a for those stepping into the grade....a worthy project!! I stick clipped the first and did not use any gear higher up...although gear at this crag is useful on a few routes...it might be helpful to bring a small rack of mid range cams. This is an Awesome route!!!

This route is safe. Don't let the description deter you from getting on this thing. An extended draw on the last bolt makes it possible to clip from really good jugs before committing into the final 5.10 moves.
