Though a little dirty at times (mostly lichen), this route deserves attention. Compared to fighting the crowds on upper Refuse (5.5), climbing this route is a no-brainer, as long as you are solid in the grade.

After climbing half of the 2nd pitch of Upper Refuse, break left heading up towards an obvious detached block at the top of the cliff. Climb to a fixed pin (you can back it up with a nut), then follow the lichen covered low angle face up and left (can feel a bit spicy) to a crack that will bring you to the block.

Layback then mantel the block or hump your way over it and step left and to the cliff top. Belay from trees.


Break left halfway up Upper Refuse (5.5).


Fixed pin and trad gear. Protects well with a standard rack to wide hand or fist size.
