DescriptionThis route is an excellent, 3 pitch, trad adventure for everybody!
P1. Climb the left-facing corner. Climb face to hand crack then squeeze through chimney. Belay on large bushy ledge, 5.8+.
P2. Pull juggy roof or climb around on easy terrain to small ledge with a bomber stopper placement. Continue up steep clean rock with crack and face moves. Move left and then right on easier terrain to small stance with bolted belay. Do not go right to the large ledge system, 5.8.
P3. Climb straight up belay using either crack to choice of finishes. The left way is better. Take wild cracks to top of buttress, 5.8+.
LocationWalk uphill towards the big tree from the right corner of the parking lot at the base of the second buttress. A huge, left-facing corner chimney marks the start.
Descend by scrambling over top of buttress and hiking down the back side.
