Description Suggest change

The name of this route really says it all. A rare beautiful crack that offers some exciting moves over gear. Don't worry though, there is still enough runout slab climbing to prevent you from thinking you are any where else.

Start at the base of the left leaning crack. Climb the crack for about 30 feet then step right onto waves in the rock. Clip 2 bolts on your way out right, then make a step over a bulge and gain ground to the belay. 5.9+, 90'

P2 Start up and head left, locate a bolt and keep moving until you hit a terrace. 5.9 120'

P3 Head up to the second terrace. Can't remember if there is a bolt or not. 5.8 100'

From the belay, continue up for another 160' or so until you are able to reach the trees.

Location Suggest change

Scramble your way up and left from the base below the tree ledge. Up about 200 feet or so you'll find a few large flat boulders leaning against the rock allowing you to gain a crack.

Protection Suggest change

Start out with finger to slightly larger gear in the crack. You may be able to find some small gear that'll hold in the flakes before the step above the bulge. Then it is bolt(s) to the top.
