This is a good route that protects very well. The route starts at a short slab and quickly reaches an assortment of cracks and small trees. Finish up at a ledge and bolted anchor.


It is rght of End of the Road and 5' left of the obvious Double Barrel.


Standard East A rack.

Fun route! Can climb it safely without girthing the trees (which will only damage them).

Fun. Bring some small gear or #10 stoppers for the area between the second and third trees. Worth the hike!

Fun route. A good warm up if you're out there; however, it is a LONG hike if you're not in the area. I wouldn't hike all the way out there just for this route. Easy to protect.

11/7/2012 - Found four pieces of rock climbing gear right at the base of this climb. PM me if you think it's yours and let me know what you're missing. Thanks!

Edit: 12/7/2012 - After one month without claim, gear has been passed on to someone who needs it/will use it. Thanks for your generous contribution.
