Climb the flake and face around it passing a small tree, then a rhododendron cluster and then a second small tree. Top out on a nice ledge and belay and rappel from one of the large trees.

This route has better rock quality than almost all of the other easy and moderate routes at this wall. And despite the vegetation the route climbs very well.


As the approach trail nears the wall you will see a wide, short slab under a slightly overhanging tall headwall. Bushwhck from the trail split, bearing slightly left to the slab. The route is the obvious easy looking right facing flake with a tree, then a rhodo then another tree near the top.

The start is hard to find in the rhodo thicket. When you reach the base of the slab head left as far as possible.

The slab itself is located a few yards right from Purple Cleaning Company.


Smaller gear. TCUs and smaller cams are best. You can sling the vegetation as well.
