Description

Take the trail from Sunset to the Pear and Apple boulder field. Hop a few boulders to the west side of the field. Follow the trail south a bit, take the side trail that heads under the boulder field. Follow the cave system to the east making your way to the top of the boulders and up to the walls below Pear and Apple. I'm sure there's an easier way to get to this climb, but this way is soooo much more fun. Follow the low angle water streak up to a bowled out area, continue up right and follow the natural moves. We did this route free-solo barefoot. The route is solid but leaves you feeling very exposed. Most of the climb is a scramble, but there are a few moves that felt like a 5.6 and one at the top that almost felt like a 5.7, but probably only felt that way because we had no shoes and it had just rained an hour before.

Location

Low angle water streak North of Pear and Apple

I'm sure there's some spots for a piece or two, but you won't need it. This route is a great solo.
