Face climb at 30-degree traverse left towards an arete that is 7ft to the right of Taco Time's top anchor. The climb start easy 5.4, then becomes 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, etc. till at the arete 5.9. Thus the name of the route. There's a jug on top of the arete -- reach to it is the crux. Top off from the jug or traverse left to the double-bolt top anchor of Taco Time. The route is full of lichen and absolutely no chalk mark -- indication of no traffic so far. To top belay or top rope, try not to use the trees 20-30 ft back from the edge. There's a rock horn on the ground 15 ft back that you can loop you rope on it.


First locate Taco Time -- it start at the left side of a boulder with a line of bolts going up. Walk around the boulder. The Increasing Grade start from the right side of the boulder. There's a big and a small tree there. Start right of the trees as well to prevent damaging them.

Either rap down the double-bolt top anchor from Taco Time, or hike down from the left side of the wall.


So far we (Gardner Hui and Kevin Earl) only top roped the route. There's hardly places for the pros. We'll go back to check when we have times.
