DescriptionThis route is in much likeness to the Perennial Route, climbing at the same grade sequence on the same wall for the second half section of this cliff.
We started at the base of the slab right from Perennial's slab beginning the first time we went up. At the top of the tongue of slab on the right side I led the slab to pop out above the thick pine boughs beyond the exposure of being on the slab with the second also climbing. On later ascents, directly up right above the tongue is a sloping ledge accessible from the ground at (5.1) and we would belay here (no pro) so that the leader's rope length would reach the tree ledge. From the upper tree ledge move left to gain access height up the wall moving right and after a short distance gained, (possibly I did a belay here) there is access onto the head wall to do exposed guerrilla tactics (5-6+) zig-zag upwards to diagonal right upward to the finish up the right side (5-8) onto the top of a big block with a very big pine on top of it. The big pine tree belay is a prow with a great exposed ambiance view.
I first went to the upper tree ledge in 1980. Over the yeas climbed to the upper tree ledge a few different ways.
