Description Suggest change

This very popular route lies in the farthest left book.

The Reid guide shows it as three pitches, but it's great to do it in two with a 60 meter rope. There are three trees on the route. Climb to the third tree, make a hard left, 10' to the corner. There's a nice little ledge there where you can sit and belay. Another long pitch goes to the top.

Location Suggest change

Approach: At one point you should cross the stream bed to the right, and walk up a small rock slab to where the route continues. The approach should take ~15 minutes if you don't get off route.

The carabiner signs posts (there are 2) are not easily spotted from the trail on the approach. When you get an information signpost titled "Profile of a Waterfall", back up 50 feet and look to your left. You'll see the carabiner signpost tucked into the woods about 30 feet from the trail. Follow it up and it'll lead you to the second signpost, which is right at the start of the route. You will need to go up the 3rd class and right along a ledge for the first belay at a tree/bush/ledge.

Descent: Right at the top there are two paths to the left, one goes down and one goes up. Go up!!! The down path leads to an extremely small path on the edge of a cliff, with a short downclimb. If you fall, slip or trip there you will die. The paths meet later. You can rappel from the bolts you find with a 60 meter rope, if you don't want to walk/slide down the slabs near them.
