Description

Begin by clambering up beautiful orange shelves, and past a small tree. The corner steepens into a 5.9 lieback through dirty and lichenous rock. Follow the crack to the left and up. Prepare yourselve for truly adventurous climbing (i.e. sandy holds, poison oak, lichen, route-finding, and vintage bolts that look like they wouldn't hold an infant)!

Location

About eighty feet up the hill to the left of the cave.

Protection

Full set of nuts and gear ranging from .5" to 5". The big stuff is optional, but helpful to protect the lieback.

Last time I was at the crag, I ended up exiting out right after the lieback. I found some old hanger-less bolts leading to the top, so I guess someone had been there before me. Also, beware some very loose and dangerously large blocks sitting precariously above the lieback section... Oct 2, 2007
