(Follows where the rope runs)

Description 

This short route is on the face to left of Beach Blanket Bingo and to the right of Red Argyle. Start off with some bouldery moves (the 'crux' of the climb)and go up easier ledges above.


Location 

Look for the flake up and left for first hands.

Easy walk off to the West, but can also get down to the East.


Protection 

Nuts and cams. Can TR this climb as well. Anchor off big tree at top of ledge.

There are a few different "lines" on this face that have varied difficulty and are all fun. Set a top rope and have some fun.

Yeah, that route has been on my standard Beach Ball solo circuit for over 20 years...But, maybe its the first time someone used a rope on it? Ha ha.

Cheers.

This is a nice, short, accessible, shaded climb, especially good for those increasingly hot midsummer days. Easy to TR. The bouldery first few moves, in my estimation, are at least 5.8.
