Ico styling up the fields
Splitter hand crack; crux is about 2/3 of the way up. An optional second pitch goes at 5.11a.
Obvious splitter hand crack in the Reflector Oven area.
Small - medium sized cams. Two-bolt anchor at top.

Ico, back for more fun and verbal abuse.

Matt Murry high up.
Probably the best 5.9 splitter in the east/south.
Nothing but pure sweet hand jams.
There's some bomber hex placements on this route!

PG13? It's a splitter crack, you get gear anywhere you want it the whole way up!

Agreed. Gear from .5-3" all the way up. Second pitch is great too with a tough lieback right from the ledge.

I was surprised to find such a great splitter on the east coast. The 10+ chimney/crack 25 feet to the left of Strawberry is worthwhile as well.
If you're there when the bushes are low, go to Bushwhack crack (10+) and The The (13). Bushwhack is a gorgeous hand/fist splitter on sharp J-tree like rock. The anchors are fixed nuts placed horizontally; they look sketchy but held me. The anchors at The The, a fingers/ring locks crack, were bomber and shiny as of this past April 2007.

PG13, honestly? Give me a break. You can get gear in anywhere on the climb.

Sorry about the PG13 - must have been an accident when I added the route way back when. Fixed now! Enjoy.

Fun route. P2- more a boulder problem than a pitch, is tough right off the beay so place (thin) gear early to avoid bouncing off the belay ledge!

I was here June 6, 2009. The stinging nettles along the path were chest-high all the way from the Ridge Trail, down the Bushwhack Trail all the way to the base of the Reflector Oven at the cave. It was cool and shady with no stinging nettles at the base of the climb.
Wear pants and long-sleeve shirts and you'll be fine. We had shorts and 15 minutes of discomfort both ways. Nobody at the climb...I guess with good reason.
