P1 40, 5.9 Climb a shallow corner (gear) to ledge and a bolt then move right and up a face past two more bolts to an anchor.

P2 40. 5.11 There is a second pitch that climbs up the huge detached block and has a fews bolts and a bolt anchor.


Under the huge detached block, about fifty feet left of "Resident Evil".


A few bolts and maybe a piece or two of gear, Bolted Anchors

Sure is reachy. If I remember correctly there is a cheater stone at the left side of the large ledge I've used to clip the the bolt. I would have placed it back there. Or maybe bring a short stick clip. That's just clipping the bolt. Nice position on top of the stack though when you top out. Jun 9, 2016

1st pitch would get 3 stars from me, second pitch 1 star.

First pitch is thought provoking, well protected, and generally enjoyable from the interesting shallow corner at the start right up to the engaging mantle move at the top.
I found the second pitch to be reachy (and I'm 6'2") and a little awkward. That would be ok but one of the tough spots is right above a big ledge I really didn't want to fall on. It is worth climbing but there are MUCH better 5.11s on the cliff. Jun 2, 2016
