Description Suggest change

A full length route free climbing most of Mines' first pitch and joining Mines' second pitch near its top. The 5.11 corner third pitch is supposed to be really good. They finished on The Bridge.

p.1 Start up Mines and take a left at the end of the flake, past a bolt and a hard exit move protected by small gear. Belay at bolt anchor above. A compact pitch with incredible climbing, powerful. 5.12d ish?

p.2 Straight up off the belay, follow some bolts/heads right until below an obtuse corner, that becomes distinct. Straight up from here, stepping left onto a good stance afer the crux and a random two bolt anchor. Finish up the crack/seam to a bolted belay on a great ledge 25' above the lip. Was a bit crumbly but has cleaned up beautifully, great pitch. 5.13a.

p.3 Follow the corner system to the belay on the Bridge 5.11.

Location Suggest change

Above the big ash tree 50' left of where the Pendulum tree's remains lay.

Protection Suggest change

Decent but not always great. After the first pitch crux it can feel necky, but small gear comes quickly. The second pitch crux is protected by small fixed bashies.
