  • Description 

    This route is described as 5.11 in Rossiter's book, but I thought it was more like 5.10 (I was on TR though). Walk up the hill along the west face from the amphitheater trail for 60ft. There's a left inclining ramp. Start where the ramp is chest height and there is a left-pointing flake 10ft. above that. Climb on top of the ramp, pull a balancy crux to get to the top of the flake. Move right on crisp edges and up to the ridge, passing under a large boulder to the right. From up top, you can walk to the left on the ridge crest to another boulder and rap from a webbing anchor.


    Protection 

    None, TR it. For a toprope, bring some nuts and small cams.

    Climbing a route ropeless has always been great style. Part of that tradition is that bragging about soloing is the most crass thing a climber can do.
