DescriptionThis is an okay line that has a good first pitch and an "eh" 2nd pitch. There is an optional section on P1 that can up it to 5.8+ R. It's not completely clear yet if this is distinct from one of Wayne Roy's new lines. The optional bit, though, is new and still crunches.
P1. Start up behind a tree quite close to the rock. Angle left and eventually gain a crack probably 20 feet up. Follow this crack until it peters out. Then, you have a choice. Going right is easier, probably 5.7 PG-13. Going left is probably no-fall terrain and still gritty, althought it does call out to be climbed. Continue up on easier terrain to a ledge and a tree. 5.7 PG-13 or 5.8+ R, 200'.
P2. This is the "get to the top pitch" as you go up moderate terrain in a groove than becomes a crack. Top out the ridge, move slightly right, downclimb 10' to the gully. 5.6, 100'.
Walk down the gully.
