The Inseminator is about 250 feet from the start of the cliff band, and about 100 feet up from the break in the cliff. To the right of a large pine tree, the climb starts from a flat area, uncharacteristic of Ridge One.
The first bolt can be reached from the ground and may be worth clipping because some of the climbs in cut edges are thin. Pull past these edges to a right-leaning crack system, and then crank left over a small but fun roof (10b/c). A few more feet of slab yields the first set of anchors. Clipping the first set of anchors and lowering makes for a good moderate 10 to warm up on.
If you feel warmed up when you get to the first anchors, you might want to continue.
From here, it trends up and right. Moving from a nasty sloper to small edges with bad feet, climb through three more clips and it is over (12c). From the chains, lower into the big pine tree at the start.
15 bolts to bolted anchors, bring a 60m rope.
