This is not my route, but it's a good choose-your-own-slab adventure. I HOPE nobody bolts this, since it's a perfect TR with lots of options at many grades (as the friable holds come and go).


This is the 5th route in the new book. It starts wherever you want to begin right of Mermaid and ends anywhere you want to top out left of Missing The Dike aka Two Dikes for Dinner (aka Two Dikes for Dinner in the new book).


TR. Double anchors are straight over all the choices.

For the record.

NOPE! Not a FA.

I, and I would assume many others, have TR'd the hell out of that formation.

I'm not claiming an FA; simply saying I don't know who did. I'm just rounding out the DataBase for the next folks to enjoy it.

This is a fun line, and it is one of the easier routes in the area. No need for stress, since it is a toprope!
