Description

Thin and powerful moves up a STEEP section of Lakeview highlighted with basketball size holes. 3 bolts were hand drilled on rappel. The route is named after my newborn daughter.

P1: 5.11b 100 ft. Dyno or make small crimps to a big starter jug, pull a hard mantle/crimp to clip the first bolt. Work balancy moves to another 'thank god' jug and clip a 2nd bolt. Get a yellow TCU in a horizontal, then traverse left towards a large hole and a 'hand in glove' red link cam pocket placement. Clip a final bolt, then up a blank 9+ slab to the good gear belay ledge
P2: 5,7+ 100 ft. Take the path of the most gear to the tree directly overhead.

Location

Far right side of Lakeview, Right of squeeze job and starts right behind a tree. Resist the temptation to use the tree while climbing, or don't.

Protection

Standard Rack
Walk off or rap the tree to the ground

I'd like to lead the 2nd pitch, as well, so let's go!

511b does seem appropriate for the 1st pitch without the three. Maybe 5.10 with the tree. Nov 6, 2011
