Access Issue: Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land.
In 2015, Access Fund acquired key privately owned access parcels when foreclosed on by the bank to keep it in climbing-friendly hands. Please park and camp on Access Fund property and take the new trail down. Please donate today ataccessfund.org/homestead to secure permanent access and conservation of the Homestead.
A cryptic hard start in both getting off the ground and passing the second bolt leads to easier climbing and a good rest. Pull the next steep section on good holds to a handjam slot, then figure out how to get past the next five feet to another great rest. Rest well as the hardest crux awaits. Increasingly difficult climbing leads to a jug, then a miserable crimp. Pull to an OK hold clip, then pull the final hard cryptic moves to the anchors.
This route may feel really hard for the Onsite as the moves are cryptic and the holds very difficult to find.
