A classic for the area. Stem your way up the left-facing dihedral. Tricky moves lead to a rest before the steep face above. Fire through awesome steep moves to a gold-corner. Super fun liebacking leads to a rest before the final bulge to the anchors. 150 feet. Like many of the longer routes at the quarry you must lower to a midway anchor, pull your rope and then lower to the ground from the midway station.


Route starts in the left-facing dihedral just left of Magic Mushroom. L-P-L to get down (lower to miday anchor, pull rope, then lower to ground).


18+ bolts to 2 shuts

I second Colin's comment. I climbed this recently after some rain and the entire route was covered in a layer of dirt. When clean it's a great route, but my experience was pretty awful. Dec 28, 2014

The dihedral portion at the top of this climb is even more stellar! But, it can get a bit dirty and grainy after rain or without much action. Nov 25, 2013

Fun climb but odd bolt placements. Many bolts are placed just out of reach from a good stance. It seems this pitch would be considerably easier with draws pre-hung. Great climbing none the less. Apr 29, 2012

Climbing to the first set of anchors on this route is a fun 5.11a outing. Jul 1, 2011
