Start the climb just about in the center of the cliff directly below two red pieces of webbing at the top. climb over nose then wedge your way over a overhang to a dirty ledge, then srtaight ip the face with little pincher holds.


has fixed bolts and anchors at top. Could use some small nuts in the beginning.

Excellent route that now sports 3/8 SS in place of the second fp, a 1 1/2" LA. Some feel the start to be harder than 8+ (probably closer to 10b). 5 bolts total. Yellow Metolius helpful near the top.

Anchor is a bolt and a fp no chain/webbing/etc.

apparently some cheap bastard has stolen my slings and rings. one can top out and sling the cluster of bushes to TR from, but it's kinda dirty.

6/22/10. there are slings and rings. The anchor is not currently set up well enough to put chains on, so these will have to do until the anchor gets updated. This is the 10th route from left, and 4th from right. It is the most obvious as the trail arrives at the crag.

Start is the crux but the run out between second and third bolt is the head. First west coast sport route for me. Thanks for the good time WWU peeps.

You can place a BD .75 between the 3rd and 4th bolt.
