  • Description 

    Climb a short finger crack (crux), just right of Napster to a ledge. Optional belay here or continue straight up a somewhat right trending bushy crack and corner system, passing two old fixed pins along the way. Stepping right onto the face whenever things get bushy makes for a more pleasant outing. Belay with great care at a large tree at the top of the cliff with lots of loose rock.

    Descent: The easiest descent involves traversing uphill to the tree above Daily Grind's second pitch. A short (20') rappel takes you to the DG anchors. With an 80m rope you can rap 40m to the ground from here or stop at the Napster anchors.


    Protection 

    Nuts to #3 or #3.5 Friend. If done in one pitch, doubles of #2, #2.5 and #3 are useful.
