Description

From the lower tier of ground at the base of the cliff, start behind the middle of a few big pines growing close to the cliff. Follow a series of cracks more or less straight up at first, passing a couple bushes, then angling left to cross Western Web. A short thin-hand crack takes you from Western Web to a small ledge. From its right side, climb a slim, left-facing corner to a small overlap and, above it, take the left-leaning, thin-hands splitter to the top and a two-bolt lower off anchor.

Established ground-up onsight.

Location

This line starts 15 feet right of Western Web, crosses it midway up the cliff, and finishes at the same anchor as Sample Collector. Start behind one of the big trees at the base of the cliff on its lower tier.

Protection

Standard rack with a few extra thin hands-sized cams.
Two-bolt lower-off anchor.
