Recent rockfall: This route once climbed up onto what we called The Buddha Ledge at about 20 feet up. Recently a massive rockfall removed the ledge and changed the beginning of this route quite a bit. A new sequence is likely possible but it will much harder.
At the top of the main gully, just right of the Buddha Cave, you will find two bolted climbs. This is the left one. Boulder up until you can layback and stem your way up to the Buddha ledge, then continue up moderate climbing into a corner. Follow this up and then the route arcs off to the left to gain a steep jam crack finish. Pumpy! Good climbing in a fun setting. It may need some recleaning, as it was not in the previous guidebook so received few ascents over the last 10 years. It is definitely worth a rescrub if that is so.
This area is often closed in the spring for Peregrines. When they are not there, ravens will often nest just to the right of this route. When the ravens are there, even if it is technically not closed, please avoid them. They will scare the shit out of you and drop rocks on you anyway if you don't.
