Follow three bolts on somewhat sandy/dirty climbing to the base of a dihedral crack to the right of the roof. Place nuts in the crack and cruise to the two bolt anchor. Be sure to bring gear as you are looking at a ground fall from the top if you don't place any. The upper crack takes good gear and goes at about 5.7. The bottom face climbing is forgetable but the crack is a lot of fun.

Hateful Pleasures lies immediately to the right of the large roof.


3 bolts at the bottom, nuts at the top. Small cams might also be useful. The two anchors are spread out a bit, long slings might be helpful for setting up a top rope anchor. Please use your own gear for top roping.

Great lead! The crack is great. This is great intro for a aspiring trad climber as you can stem and get hands free placements for the gear in the top.

Bring the larger size nuts (BD ~7 to 13)
Optionally bring BD C3 #1 & #2, and BD C4 #0.4 & #0.5

The anchor bolts are far apart and 2ft slings make a nice anchor. Jul 18, 2010

This has new anchors with chains and carabiners so you no longer need slings for your anchor. Sep 10, 2011
