Hard slab climbing with a nice fall potential. Just right of Bombardment, work up a seam to the first bolt, step right then back left to the second bolt. (California Girls goes up from here)scoot r along a seam to safety.Really good rock. though the fall from the direct can be long, it is safe.


If you can find Bombardment yu are all set


Not much, a couple of small nuts

Tuts and I did western Lady at the second bolt he calls down - " you should try straight up" Seemed reasonable and I did it first try. Went down to the car had a beer (maybe 2) and went back up to lead California Girls no falls. Back to the car for several beers !
