Climb the route just to the right of MCurry. Be aware of one or two loose blocks along the way. Aim for the right-hand notch at the top.


Just to the right of MCurry.


Small to medium cams and nuts. Bring along some long webbing to rig a top belay from one of the trees, as there are no fixed anchors here.

Has anyone lead this with gear? Last time I was there I checked it out and couldn't figure out how to get started safely.. didn't look like there were any good gear placements. Apr 4, 2016

Lead this last week and it's definitely not climbed much since it was covered in spider webs. There really isn't much protection at the bottom, but the moves aren't particularly hard. Jul 18, 2016

Finally got on this. Set a TR anchor and rappelled down to check for trad placements. Top is ok, bottom sucks though. The first possible spot is a very narrow crack, maybe 6" long, you can't see it from the ground, 12-15? feet up. Slightly flaring out. It wouldn't safely take my smallest tricam (black sling). May take a red or yellow X4, will check next time. After that, it should be easy climbing and placements. Aug 7, 2016
I've led this and many neighboring sport routes on gear. While they take gear well, I don't trust the rock quality on the blocky and easier routes, especially after blocks have literally fallen out of the cliff line with bolts and all. Feb 13, 2017
