Starts via standing on some decaying tree trunks. Work your way up a short flake to the first bolt and do a highstep mantle to land your feet on top of the flake. The next move involves another, but easier mantle to access the second bolt which protects the upcoming crux. A couple of face moves from here leads one to easier climbing and the rap/lower bolts. Fun and well protected. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
