Description

Begins to the right of a small cave with a giant tuffa about 20 ft. off the deck. Go up and right of the cave and right of the giant tuffa then go left and up over the tuffa and to the left of a wide crack. Feel the exposure as the pump builds. Route is charecterized by excellent steep climbing that keeps you engaged.

Location

route is above the lower climbing area as the trail begins to go uphill. the small cave at the base and the giant tuffa make this route hard to miss.

Protection

9 draws and a two bolt anchor. several bolts and slung huecos

I would call this route a sandbag at 5.10a. I felt it was much harder and two other climbers told me they felt it was 5.11a. Regardless of the rating, I really enjoyed the route since it is quite different from the usual face climbing found here. The route has varies and exposed climbing. I thought it would let up near the end when I saw the crack. However, there was nothing inside the crack and the route became a little more desperate at the end, trying to chicken wing inside the crack. Definitely a classic climb for this area. Nov 4, 2013
