This fine pitch is the face between the second pitches of Gnarly and The Big E.
Really enjoyable face climbing protected by five bolts (placed in 2003 by Gary and Lynn Clark) and some small gear near the top. Classic El Rito face climbing!


Access the route by climbing the first pitch of Gnarly or, better, climbing the first pitch of The Big E to the bolted anchor. From the bolted anchor move left and follow five bolts straight up the clean face and beyond to the top. It is possible to rappel from the bolted anchor atop P2 of Juniper Overhang to the bolted anchor atop P1 of The Big E and then down to the ground. This requires two 60 ropes and some good rope pulling technique to avoid getting the ropes snagged in the numerous trees and bushes on the wall. Better to just take the standard trail down the backside of the wall back to the base.


Five bolts on smooth, hard to protect face climbing and then small cams and small nuts up higher. Continue straight up from the bolt line to belay from a large pine tree or traverse right to the bolted anchor atop P2 of Juniper Overhang.
