This is an incredibly fun climb. Start on cool slopey edges and jugs down low. Move into a neat crux then up and around a roof to a sweet slab move. Find the jugs and work into the beautiful golden dihedral. Exit onto steep blocky jugs and use good footwork to pull the final roof out to a small headwall and finally the anchors. Superb movement calling for a variety of techniques in a stunningly aesthetic location. Have fun!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

All in situ carabiners are now upgraded to quality steel bent gates thanks to a very generous and motivated local. No more sharp edged junk carabiners on entire wall. This is a huge improvement in safety. Thank you!
