Description

This is a pleasant but obscure route on the left side of this slabby cliff. It can be very nice on a hot summer morning.

Hop up on a small ledge. Place a #2 Friend. Follow the bolts on small but decent edges until the 3rd bolt. The line of least resistance at the crux can be found by moving left briefly. Scamper up easier terrain above and clip the last bolt. Find an anchor at a tree.

Descend left or rappel using a tree or the anchors for Quick Chill.

Protection

4 bolts, #2 Friend, slings for the tree anchor.

Not to try to sound hard, but I honestly don't think the trad placement was necessary. Jul 20, 2013
