Description

Follows a system of seams, then turns to slopers up high. The crux of the route seems to be moving from the clipping stance for the first bolt and establishing yourself on the wall.

Location

First route you come to when going past the left side of the left bunker. Starts on a big flake down low and moves to a ramp out left.

Don't overlook this climb! It looks kind of so-so from the ground, but it's very enjoyable climbing! I'm short (5'2) and I found the second bolt a wee bit hard to clip. I definitely think the hardest part of the climb is getting established on the route, after that it's very consistent. There's great holds up top! enjoy! Apr 6, 2008

As far as location goes, looks like there is a new route just left of the Left Bunker. Pillsbury may be considered the second route past the bunker. The new route feels more like a 5.9 Can anyone verify this? Jun 7, 2012

Regarding the comment above, yes the route to the right of Pillsbury (first one coming from the bunker) is far easier. I would probably give it a 5.8 or 5.8+. Pillsbury is amazing! Very good for a smaller person's first 11. Jul 26, 2013
First 11a onsite!! Fantastic route with somewhat tricky feet. Apr 4, 2016
