Description 

The first route on the left when one approaches the wall (starts directly in front of the tree stump). This route is usually done in two pitches but can be done in one with a 60 meter rope (without lowering of course).

Pitch 1: 5.7-
The first pitch climbs to the obvious anchor to the right of the start. It has good rock and big holds.

Pitch 2: 5.10A
The second pitch climbs straight up the headwall and has good nobs, edges and an obvious pocket. The crux comes at the pocket on the steepest portion of the wall and is a bit above the bolt so be prepared. Once through the crux 5.8 awaits to the top where a solid Madrone tree assists as a belay anchor.

Descend using the cable.

The name is something we came up with because of a large dinner plate sized hold that came off of the climb a while back.

Location 

First route on the first wall you come to. Huge, obvious protruding blocks are the start holds. The first pitch can also be done via the route to the right of the 5.7. It goes at 5.9 on mossy rock (less fun).

Protection 

Draws. The first pitch requires around 7 or 8. The second I believe takes between 5-7 so bring 7. Slings for the tree belay.

Another route that can be done as a single pitch with a 60 meter rope. Bring a lot of long draws to reduce drag and have your belayer tie in before you take off on the climb.

This route can be done in one long push. 60 meter rope won't be an issue. 10a rating is a bit soft but watch out for that moss.
