|Upper Broadloaves - North
A good route with good position and great jams. This is one that is somewhat difficult without being insecure.
Climb up and into a "slot" at the base of the corner and you suddenly find yourself in a phonebooth-sized shaft, climbing up an easy initial 20 feet. Get some protection and jams and pull into the crack and corner. CLimb up to the bulge, set gear, and pull the fun crux. Roll onto the top.
To descend, head up and N.E. to a set of anchors above Two Bits/Fred Rasmussen and rap on a 60M or 70M rope
THis route is on the North Face of the Upper Breadloaves, and sits above the old (closed) toilet and is accessed from the parking lot to the East or West. The route follows the prominent right-facing corner with the jamcrack through and overhang and to the top. The steep and difficult looking splitter to the left is 'Interceptor.'
A standard light rack. The crux protects on hands and thin hands cams.
Upper corner of Tide Country. Interceptor on the ...

Two bolt belay at the top of interceptor/stolen thunder makes descending from this route much more pleasant. Head up and left from the box chimney to reach them.

such pretty rock & fun cimbing. easier than funky bolt (5.9), easier than batwings (5.8).

We scrambled over the chockstone and belayed in the little alcove at the base of the corner. I didn't find the initial 20 feet "easy", offwidth-type moves were necessary. The crux isn't thin hands as the description says, it protects with BD #2 and #3. We didn't find any anchors at the top of Interceptor, but it's possible I didn't go left soon enough.
