A fun journey up some interesting holds.


The route is on the left end of the lower upper wall (Crackin' the Cherry, Muy Macho, etc...). Locate a large detached pillar. First route to the right of the pillar is a newer, dirty 5.10. Red Chili is the second route to the right of the pillar.

Don't confuse this one with the funky thing on the left (Log Jammin?). Between the first and second bolts is by far the hardest part, but the rest is fairly jug-y and obvious with good protection. 8 bolts to 2 cold shuts.

The recent guide book of this area lists this route as a 5.9, but the start has become so polished, the current 10a rating on Mountain Project is more appropriate. Once you reach the second bolt, it's a cruise to the finish.

Mostly 5.9, but a couple5.10 slabby/thin moves above first bolt. Enjoyable.
