Follow the cracks between Overhang Direct and Ooga Chocka. After a ledge about 20ft up, you'll reach a long wide undercling. Climbing up to the right of this undercling is more like 5.7, while climbing the smoother face to the left is the actual 5.9.


Two bolts if you wanna set up a toprope. Otherwise there are many good places for pro.

Felt like this climb was pretty sustained. Perhaps no single "hard" 5.9 move but definitely sustained. Gear is there (TCU's are very big handy!) but some placements have to be made in less than ideal stances.

Red and Purple TCU's used. Also 0.5 and 0.75 BD cam. Jul 14, 2014
