Description

Start at a thin seam and climb up to the obvious hold at about 10-12 feet (first crux). Go to the roof, over this (second crux), then up the face to the larger roof with a notch. Pass the roof then climb straight up for 30-40 feet. At that point, I went almost straight left for 20 feet or so to a decent tree and a good stance and rappelled from there.

Location

As the trail rises up towards an ampitheatre after the Catnip area and You're in the wrong place, my friend, on the right you'll find two thin seams. The left one is Elf Stone, and the right is Whet Stone.

Protection

Standard rack.

first pitch is a nice 5.8 that is more interesting than it looks. The real crux is getting off the deck. Ballnutz helpful to protect the start but not required. Just past the area that is closed - so a long walk over the top to avoid trespassing. A worthy line if you are in the area but probably not a destination. Nov 8, 2010

Lots of worthwhile climbing on this pitch! It didn't seem to let up - not as easy as it looks from the ground, for sure. Aug 19, 2013
