Description

At right side of steep headwall immediately left of a tree. First pitch is run out but easy (5.6). Climb straight up to first bolt. Second is out of sight aiming towards one o'clock. Third is up and left. From third bolt go left a bit more, pull overlap and walk to belay. P2- First bolt is up and left. Traverse back right above belay then straight up past several bolts to tree belay. Rap off tree. Double ropes needed. Rock is such that route can be climbed when running water (as it was on FA).

Protection

Mostly bolts, you can finagle some dinky stuff on P2 if you want, plus a chicken head on P2.

As the description suggest this route can indeed be climbed when it is running with water. When it was time for me to follow the second pitch it started raining, It definitely added to the challenge. Be cautious up top it is pretty slick with all the mud and ashes from the fire. Also, the rap tree looked like it might have burned a little so use your judgement. As of 1/21/17 we left cordelette and a locker on the tree plus there was already an old one there. Jan 22, 2017

I was curious if fire affected trees up top of this wall since that is where fire started. If any doubt exists I would advocate for putting bolted anchors in. Jan 25, 2017
