My partner wanted to climb this because of the name -- we both were hoping for something along the lines of Over the Hill. Boy were we wrong. Not only is this climb a pile of chossy rock with few fun moves, but the approach is tedious & tricky to find. Get there by going to the end of the Streamside Trail -- where the West Ridge rock runs right into the creek (as far south as you can get). If approaching from the other side, scramble over this southern buttress above the water. You'll see two ramp systems (and lots of things that look like ramps) -- take the most obvious one that is furthest east. This is marked by a model-looking Christmas tree.

Climb up ramp 50 feet or so until another twisted tree blocks your way up the ramp. Go around this tree and begin looking for a hard-to-see bolt on a shallow, left-facing dihedral about 20 feet over your head. Climb up here (or just go home -- the climbing is bad). The hard moves are 10 feet above the bolt and well protected. Pull over the top onto a ramp and scramble all the way up this ramp to set up a belay.

Rap off on the far west side of the West Ridge or perhaps go back down the ramp.


A few small & medium cams + one quickdraw for the newly replaced bolt.
