P2: 5.10d
P3: 5.10a

Climbs palm tree to palm tree (the anchors are bolted and you can stand or sit on the trees to avoid hanging belays).

A short 5.7 section at the top will take you to the ridge.

Pitches are long so bring two ropes to descend.


Just left of Baked Fresh Daily (on the right end of the TNT Wall).

[Hide Comment] 15 bolts on the first pitch and you'll use every bit of your 72 meter rope lowering Jan 25, 2017

[Hide Comment] The start of the route is just left and below the dirt platform at the base of Baked Fresh Daily and is marked by a name tag and a single belay bolt.

A sub anchor (2 Fixe rap hangers) was installed approximately half way up the third pitch in February 2015 so the climb may now be safely rapped using a single 70 m rope as follows:

2 short raps take you to the station at the top of pitch 2. One long 35m rap straight down from here enables you to reach a refurbished, semi-hanging rap station about 5m to the climber's right (left looking outwards) of the station at the top of pitch one (make sure you have stopper knots in the end of your rope!) Rap from here to ground (33m). Feb 4, 2017

[Hide Comment] You can do pitch one and two in a mega pitch with a long 70m rope. Bring something like 25 draws. Feb 25, 2019
