DescriptionStart just right of Ledges To Lawndale and climb the easiest path through the initial steep section (it's possible to climb direct at about 5.10+). Once established in the first horizontal (medium piece here) move up and right aiming for the solitary bolt. Clip the bolt, pass another horizontal (small cams/tricams work well) and then make easy moves on positive patina edges. The last few moves are heady and involve leaving the security of a small ledge to do a short bit of insecure smearing to the top. Bolted anchor on top as well as a cool natural thread which can be used and backed up with small gear if the bolts are missing.
This is a fairly good route with an interesting mix of steep positive climbing and insecure friction. This when combined with the other routes on the wall can provide a few hours of fun in the sun (or shade) if desired. Two stars out of five.
