Just great fun and fine rock!

P1. 80, 5.11 Start up a short right facing corner to a stance just below the first bolt. A tricky step off the stance gains an undercling to layback crack up to another stance. From this stance follow bolts past a small overlap up a low angle but extremely thin face/slab ending in a big solution pocket at chains.I found a small mono pocket on the upper face, memorable!

P2. 90, 5.10+ From the anchor climb up an easy low angle slab past more solution pockets to the base of a short wall with a few bolts. After pulling over the wall continue up another 40 feet of unprotected 5.0 slab to a blueberry ledge and chains.

Both pitches can be linked with minimal rope drag.
Walk off or make two raps with a 60m rope.


Below and south of The Beach. Approaching from the base several hundred feet right South America Flake are four bolted routes on a steep face this is the first one. It starts about ten feet left of "Sex On The Beach"


P1 7 bolts & #2 camalot to Chains. P2 4 bolts to Chains.

I'd recommend a med/lg cam at the horizontal crack. Oct 31, 2011

Someone told me that the name of this route is "Learning to Swim." It shares the same anchor as "Sex on the Beach." There is a new second pitch w/ a few bolts that goes at .10c. Oct 14, 2011
