Description

P1: Climb the watergroove and features to the right and left over several bolts to anchors.

P2: Up and left to the gigantic plank feature, pull this through the notch, then slab up into the trees stopping to belay/rap whenever you feel like it once you get into the vegetation.

Location

Far left flank of LK.
Climb up, rap off.

Be quiet on this side of LK as there are homeowners right on top of the cliff. Be respectful.

Protection

I believe we counted a total of 6 bolts on P1 (maybe 7 or 8...can't recall) to anchors. No additional pro is needed.

P2 is gear to the trees with big cam placements at the bottom of the flake. 120' to trees, 200' if you slab all the way to the top.

Rap off.

The easiest way to locate the start of this climb is across the canyon from Hypocrite's Corner, and slightly up, underneath some downward-pointing flakes. You can see the first bolt up near where the tree branches come close to the rock.

The first pitch of this climb is great and has bolts where you need them.

The second pitch of this climb is some really unique and awesome moves up through the notch followed by lots of dirty, vegetated bullshit climbing.

New cord added to a large pine near the top 9/9/17. Old cord on a pine 50 feet below this was cut as it was ratty beyond belief. Sep 11, 2017

This climb is actually quite far from the start of Groover. You have to bushwack up Dillard Canyon. It's steep and confusing! I'd say at least 10 minutes past Groover. Sep 12, 2017
