  • Description 

    The left most route on the main wall at the 82. Go left when the approach trail hits the cliff through a cave formed by a boulder leaning against the face. Go around the backside and climb up on top of the boulder. Make a thin move on dirty rock to get established on the face at a bolt above. Climb into the the finger crack above and battle your way left to a ramp. Climb the ramp (#5 tricam placement) to a shelf and a bolt. Head straight up the face above on sweet cracks to a 3 bolt finish up to a bolt anchor just below the trees.

    Location 

    Left most route on the main face at the 82. A bit old school with some runouts, moss and dirt here and there, but a good time.

    Protection 

    Gear to hand sized and a rack of draws.

    Hey Seth,

    Did you guys re-scrub this? Last time I checked it out it was almost completely overgrown.

    No. Hoping with some beta people might hop on it more and keep it cleaner. Dennis and I also have a project in mind over there so we'll probably clean it a bit anyway as we get to work on the new thing.

    Ok, so the duo is REALLY dirty. It's amazing how overgrown it's gotten in just a few years. Hopefully we can scrub it off this summer and get it back into climbable condition again. If anyone wants to volunteer go for it!
