Agreed. Gear from .5-3" all the way up. Second pitch is great too with a tough lieback right from the ledge. Apr 18, 2007

I was surprised to find such a great splitter on the east coast. The 10+ chimney/crack 25 feet to the left of Strawberry is worthwhile as well.

If you're there when the bushes are low, go to Bushwhack crack (10+) and The The (13). Bushwhack is a gorgeous hand/fist splitter on sharp J-tree like rock. The anchors are fixed nuts placed horizontally; they look sketchy but held me. The anchors at The The, a fingers/ring locks crack, were bomber and shiny as of this past April 2007. Jul 18, 2007

Fun route. P2- more a boulder problem than a pitch, is tough right off the belay so place (thin) gear early to avoid bouncing off the belay ledge! Jun 6, 2008

I was here June 6, 2009. The stinging nettles along the path were chest-high all the way from the Ridge Trail, down the Bushwhack Trail all the way to the base of the Reflector Oven at the cave. It was cool and shady with no stinging nettles at the base of the climb.

Wear pants and long-sleeve shirts and you'll be fine. We had shorts and 15 minutes of discomfort both ways. Nobody at the climb...I guess with good reason. Jun 10, 2009

Yesterday 16 apr 2016 my party and I had to leave in a hurried fashion.
The climb was great fun.
My partner unbeknownst to me left 4 pieces of my gear in strawberry fields.
2) cams
1) tricam
1) stopper w/ QuickDraw
I am going to back to retrieve them probably Thursday if anyone happens to get there first please be kind enough to leave them for me. It would be so much appreciated.
Cheers! Apr 18, 2016
