BETA PHOTO: Actual location of Pop is shown by the dotted line...


This is on the left side of the second tower, facing north. A difficult entry leads to easier climbing. 9 bolts.

Highly enjoyable face climbing in a stunning location. Classic Alabama Hills style climb. The crux past the first bolt is well-protected, and the rest of the climb stays relatively mellow, though engaging.

Great route with a fantastic opening sequence. Balancy move to get established leads to a solid first clip. The also balancy and strong crux moves arrive as quickly as they leave but are great fun and result in another solid clipping position at the second bolt. The climbing above eases considerably, especially as you get higher, but remains enjoyable and flows well.
