Description

P1- Climb up lower-angled terrain right of a prominent waterstreak. Aim for the system of finger-sized cracks/roofs above. Undercling out and pull a couple of bulges (crux) to a fixed belay at two bolts. 5.9, 100'.

P2- Climb up a small right-facing corner to a bolt, move right on thin holds (crux) and pull a bulge. Climb steeper terrain on huge holds to the top. 5.10a, 40'.

NOTE: As with most routes here, the pitches can be linked if most pro is clipped long.

Location

Route is more or less in the middle of Ship Rock's main tier. Look for a dead tree at the base. The fixed belay can be spotted from below.
