Description

This is a classic route that makes a great warm-up, or a worthy project. There is a brief section of tedious, thin climbing just below the anchor, but for the most part this line involves fun, athletic climbing with big holds and big moves.

Climb big pockets up the beautiful yellow & brown panel, passing a precarious tooth, to reach a stance below the bulge. A big crank from a 2-finger pocket leads to jugs and the odd lieback up the crack/groove. As the crack peters out, follow great crimps and a few nice pockets to a thin section to reach a horizontal break and the anchor.

Location

Hike ~4-5 minutes left (south) from where the approach trail meets the cliff to locate an orange wall of clean stone with an obvious bulge running the width of the cliff at 1/3 height. This is the "Tropical Wall". This line climbs the central crack system through the bulge. Scramble up the left end of the ledge to start.

Protection

7 bolts, 2 BA, a stick clip is recommended.
