Looking up from the road at Satori.
There are 2 cruxes the first is the start climb the roof and flake when you can stand on the top of the flake climb left past a bolt then strait up through horazontals finshing with a bolt (second crux) up a trough to the anchors. Amazing! We did a first pitch to this climb starting from the gound. Its 5.9 and uses all gear I do not recomend climbing this. Instead approach left of the Jelly Stone wall then continue up another short gully to the top of the Satori Wall. turn south (right) and walk 100 yards. on your right you will see some bolt anchors and chain that can hang down in the upper trough on Satori. Either rap to the starting ledge or continue walking south to the end of the Satori wall then decend to the the starting ledge and travers over to the big ledge, roof and flake. Enjoy!
As you are driving north into Maryellens pass the boulder on the right look up and see the slab then continue up the road about 50 yards. on the right will be a boulder scree and no trees blocking the view look up and locate the roof and flake about 20 ft up from the ground and 50ft left of the south end of the wall. Continue up 50 more yards and park in the Right or left Pull outs.
Small to medium gear 2 bolts. I recomend tcu's 0-3.
Zoomed in on the roof and flake of Satori.
