Description

Fun crimping on a steep face. Start on an easy slab ramp that leads to a left leaning crack. Pull up onto the bulge and start clipping bolts on a steep slab (crux). After the steep section, make an easy run to the top. The crux may feel much more difficult if you are short.

Location

15' left of Drivin' and Cryin'. Left side of the smooth face before reaching the gully. Top-belay off trees and walk climbers left down the gully to return to the base.

Protection

Single rack for the start and draws for the 5 bolts.

Shawn, your totally right. Hopefully the description is a little more clear now. Sorry about the confusion. It is a height dependent crux, whether or not you can reach those crimps. My 5'3" wife hates this route, because she can't reach them. Sep 1, 2010

I felt like the steep slab was more difficult than the bulge, and I'm 5'7". Aug 18, 2010
