  • Description 

    Look for an old bolt about 40 feet off the deck. Climb to the bolt, then climb on the outside of a thin flake that makes weird sounds as you the top of this...clip another old bolt and then make a few steeper moves to a belay.


    A slab climb located about 50 yards north of the pear and apple.


    two old bolts...some small cams and stoppers for belay.

    Bolts were replaced Dec 06, and the climb has a bolted anchor with rap chains 80 Ft off the deck. The belay chains can also be accessed by a 3rd and 4th class ramp that starts about 40 yards to the left (north) of the climb if one wishes to toprope the climb.

    Chains, for this route alone? Nobody needed chains for the preceding 25 years.

    This was a mystery route. Somebody found it and the bolt, but nobody knew who put it up.
