This route heads up to the roof and then straight out to the lip. Enjoy the Jug haul in the middle and then set up for the thin and dynamic crux move to finish.


This is the 2nd route from the left, the first route with fixed draws. Starts on a few steep slab moves and then goes directly out the roof.


fixed draws, quickdraws, fixed biner anchors

FA by Joe as he was passing thru from Tahoe. Hence the name. 1994

The most directly bolted line as you walk up and put your stuff down. It starts a little to the left on a slabby face and then trends right through some chains and out the roof. Slightly harder than Club Foot. Somewhat awkward climbing through the 3rd and fourth bolts as you have to fumble through chains and bolts to get to the holds.
