classic climbing

Description 

Start under overlap, climb and clip two bolts. Spy the sick flake feature and figure out how you are going to get there. Awesome liebacking leads to easier ground. Make a commiting move to an undercling and bust hard left. Follow the undercling until it runs dry. Take a breath and get ready to boulder. Crush the boulder problem in the wicked water grove, clip a "thank dog" bolt and run it to the chains. Classic mixed route.

Location 

70m rope lowers to the ground. carabiner anchors.

Protection 

3 bolts, gear to 1" (optional 3" piece) #3 nut is nice for upper crux. long slings up high minimize gnarly rope drag.

a 60m will work if you head left to a ramp/ledge system at the base of Squeeze my Lemon. easy 3rd class downclimb from here.
