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?


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


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
