Description

A nice pitch on good rock which seems pretty easy until you hit a puzzling crux near the end. The rock at the bottom is granite, but partway through appears to become crosley dotted limestone -- is this just a patina or an actual layer change?

This section of cliff seems to collect a lot of runoff debris.

Location

The right hand route on the east facing wall just uphill and at right angles to the wall containing Night School.

Protection

7 bolts.

Super classic 10b. From top to bottom it's very fun with very good rock quality. The small roof near the top is definitely the best part in my opinion; it's well protected and there are numerous ways it can be done. May 16, 2013
