Named after an especially fierce dog named Sequoia, this climb is tame in comparison. What appears from the ground to be a skin-eating offwidth replete with loose blocks is actually an enjoyable outing on mostly solid rock. After an opening moves crux that serves up the only mandatory OW moves on the pitch, Quoia the Destroya offers fun, steep moves on solidly wedged flakes. After about 50' make an exposed move left under the bulge (blue camalot helpful) and follow the left-leaning crack to a ledge and the anchor for I Be Jammin'.
Quoia the Destroya starts immediately to the right of I Be Jammin'. Look for the wide crack behind the pine tree. Please be mindful of the erosion prone base to this route and pitch in by moving rocks and helping to stabilize the area. Thanks!
