Description

This route is naturally broken up into 3 sections with two great rest ledges.

The first section climbs the crack to a roof about 15 feet off the deck. Pull the roof to the left and climb blocks to the first rest ledge.

The second section is a twin-crack system that will work your stemming skills. Watch out for the cactus on the left as you pull up to the second ledge after the twin cracks.

Step left to climb the third section to a large juniper overhanging the edge. This section pulls some blocky and a bit over-hanging moves to the top.

Location

This climb is about 60 feet to the right of the Trinity Cracks area and about 10 feet to the left of Angel's Delight. A very large juniper overhanging the cliff marks the top of the climb.

This was an awesome route. The beginning up and over the roof are so-so, but the double cracks section is really great. The last section will make you earn it, no gimme once you get to the last ledge, but good stuff. Jun 6, 2010

Yeah, this route really has it all! After the face-climbing and ledge, I opted to layback the left crack through the double crack section. Fun climb. Aug 15, 2011

I want to re-emphasize the "step left" part of the route description. At the 2nd ledge, you want to step about 6-8 feet left (basically finishing on "Head Cheese") to keep it even close to the grade of "7+". The natural line straight up does go, but at about 10+ with serious ledge fall potential. May 29, 2017
