Description

Posting this route as a public service rather than a recommendation... wally world is a MUCH better route for the grade and not as brushy! we didn't follow the route after the first pitch chimney and opted for a roof exit left of the keyhole area.

P1-follow a dihedral/gully system where the slab ends at the south end of east face for 130' to the top of a chimney.

P2-continue up easy slabs to the base of the keyhole area.

P3-angle right and into the keyhole from here. walk-off behind keyhole.

Protection

standard rack, a #4 is handy for the chimney, and don't forget your machete...

This route is ok if you are looking for an easy route. The vegetation is not too bad right now. There are a few bushes in random locations but nothing too much. Every pitch has a small section which makes you think though the route is mostly very easy. I did not place protection on the second pitch, yet you could if you wanted to. I think the route is ok for beginners if you are in the area. Jul 1, 2015

The brush on this route sucks but it makes a fun adventure solo climb. The crux is at the beginning of the first pitch. Mar 17, 2006
