Description

In my opinion, this is the standout route at Potter's Point (aside from the Caveman Boulder), and is also the easiest line here.

The climb starts up a shallow left-facing dihedral with some neat stemming/layback moves on a thin crack, then moves right along a horizontal break and up. Some loose flakes were encountered along the traverse.

Location

See photo. The route is marked by a dead leaning pine tree that parallels a pink colored face.

Protection

5 or 6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Walkoff down the backside.

After giving this another go, I have changed my rating to two stars. It's pretty fun and one of the easier and more stand out routes here. A little difficult to get to if you have a large dog, but otherwise great! Feb 3, 2014
There are no Eye bolts or some such to rap the top of this. I had to leave a couple carabiners at the top. Two bolts protect this at the top. One was firm, and the other one spun a bit. I believe it took 5 or 6 quickdraws to lead. The first part of the climb is the trickiest. Dec 19, 2015
