Description

Probably the lowest-quality route I did in Tahoe, but still sort of fun. Gear is somewhat tricky in the flaring crack. Crux comes before the first bolt, so maybe not a good one to push your limits on?

Location

Leftmost route on the small buttress to the left of Rehab. Build an anchor at the top and walk down to the left.

Protection

A range of gear. One or two bolts protect the face down low.

An intriguing route, overall a nicer climb (barely) than God of Plunder to its right. The crux is found on the thin face climbing up to the first bolt; past this point, it is smooth sailing up the remaining face and featured crack. A small boulder at the top of the route provides a convenient anchor. The route is dirty with moss and cobwebs, but avoids the afternoon sun. If you get lost on the descent from the Lower Buttress, it's worth a climb. Aug 14, 2017
