Description

This route is described as 5.11 in Rossiter's book, but I thought it was more like 5.10 (I was on TR though). Walk up the hill along the west face from the amphitheater trail for 60 feet. There's a left-inclining ramp. Start where the ramp is chest height and there is a left-pointing flake 10 feet above that. Climb on top of the ramp, and pull a balancy crux to get to the top of the flake. Move right on crisp edges and up to the ridge, passing under a large boulder to the right. From up top, you can walk to the left on the ridge crest to another boulder and rap from a webbing anchor.

Protection

None, TR it. For a toprope, bring some nuts and small cams.

Might be harder than it was, as I broke off several holds.
Leading this would be a total gamble. Aug 23, 2014

Climbing a route ropeless has always been great style. Part of that tradition is that bragging about soloing is the most crass thing a climber can do. Jul 12, 2008
