Description

The best route in the Park Ridge/Wilderness area. Porous rock, pumpy, tricky sequence over thin holds, solid rock, great pro.

Protection

Stainless bolts to anchors (new 2005)

[ed. note: 12/03 - existing anchors replaced w/2 SS ½” bolts w/Fixe Hangers.]

Hike to the top of the hill and rappel down. One of the best routes in the area (just wish it were longer). There is a really fun sequence that can take a couple of tries to figure out, but is rewarding once you master it. The whole route is very well protected. Nov 22, 2017

It would be hard to completely avoid poison oak at the base. It's even harder to keep your rope out of it. It is obvious that the base was cleared at one point, but nature is pretty resilient and the oak is starting to grow back.

A pretty good route even though it is about 30 feet high. It's pretty much a bush whack from the top of the route to the main trail. You're better off using the little access trail that goes to the base than trying to reach the top and then rap in.

A good route worth doing even if you might get a little poison oak. Feb 17, 2008
