BETA PHOTO: The bottom flake and roof of The Lawn Rake.

Description 

Fun 5.8 flake climbing to a bolt-protected crux face move. (The face move is easily aided by stepping in a sling and reaching the horn on the roof above.) Then go over a small roof and enjoy the 5.5 crack climbing to a ledge with a two 1/2" bolt anchor.

Location 

On a lower-angle bluff up and right of Plum Pudding and Folsom Blues.

Protection 

Small nuts to a fist-sized cam.

Jon, I have looked for this, how far over from Folsom is it?

Hi Geoff,

I'm guessing about 100 feet or less, and a little uphill.

I TRed another route just right of The Lawn Rake that follows some face holds leading to a seam in a left-facing shallow corner. Thin 5.10-5.11 moves. It needed some more cleaning at the top though. Next time I visit, I'll see about finishing it off.
