  • Description 

    The cruxes are isolated and well protected, making this a worthwhile route to try to onsight. Locate the left line of bolts at the very top of the tree ledge. They are nearly invisible due to a tan colored paint. P-1 Climb the short section of patina type edges to a bolt and a difficult mantel. Clip another bolt and make a thin and reachy move to good holds that lead to a good stance. Move right and up to a an obvious large pocket, and clip the 3rd bolt. Make more hard moves past this to the 4th bolt. Continue up past another bolt to a great stance and gear. Move right (#1 camelot here)and up to the last bolt. Make more thin moves past this to bulgy horizontals (small cams here), and finally a nice belay ledge at 100'. P-2 Climb up and diagonally right to the top (5.7).


    Location 

    On the far left side of the Desperado wall. It is up the hill from "Reckless Criminal". Look for the nearly invisible tan colored bolt hangers.


    Protection 

    light rack of cams up to #1 camelot

    Been racking my brain to figure out who this Petey Allen is. I think I figured it out. Is he that short dude with really heavy facial hair? Tends to drool?

    Yes Eddie that's correct. He always seems to remain calm even when I'm completely scared out of my wits.
