Description

This route starts in the center of the Pear.

P1. Get on top of some blocks, about 100 feet right of the Batrachian Dihedral and below a long roof band about 100 feet up. Climb a 5.7 slab with less-than-perfect protection, turn the roof near (but not in!) a break on the right (5.8, #1.5 Friend just above the roof), and traverse about 20 feet left to a belay at 2 bolts. It is somewhat scary for the second unless creative protection can be arranged above the roof. 190'.

P2. Engage excellent slab climbing up and slightly right past 3 bolts; head right into an easier crack, and belay on a ledge. You can continue to a tree.

P3. Do an easy rightward traverse, gaining some elevation, to find the walk-off or a short rappel on the east side of the cliff.

Protection

Light standard rack to a #3.5 Friend.
