DescriptionNew Route on the Wildflower Wall.
Begin about 25ft right of Wildflower at a short steep wall leading to a fist/ow splitter. Climb the crack which eventually narrows to fingers to the top of the pillar. From the ledge atop the pillar climb the nice face above past a bolt climbing slightly up and right. The pitch ends at the wildflower anchors 100+ ft up, 5.10a. Pitch two climbs up and right over increasingly easy ground past blocky ledges and up to a bolted belay just left of a nice L facing corner, 5.6. Pitch 3 climbs the corner to a roof, surmount the roof and continue to a ledge. Climb the clean face trending up and right past a thank gawd horizontal pro placement and up past a bolt. More easy terrain leads to the bolted belay 5.10c. The last pitch originally went up and right to a thin crack/weakness at 5.10. On the second ascent we discovered a very nice direct line straight up the headwall past a couple of bolts then leading to a ledge where the original line joins, then continue up to the anchor, 5.11b (for the direct line).
