Description

Route F: Best of the crappy rock routes on this crag. Thin-ish face moves on slabby kitty litter lead to some nice brown rock. 6 bolts to Mussy Hooks. Anchor at top is sort of a rope shredder if you are getting lowered due to a sharp plate just below the Mussy Hooks.

Susan's Notes: Route is farthest right on the crag just before an extremely exfoliating corridor. First two bolts are up some thin entry moves entwined with orange lichen.

Location

Far right side of the crag. Start in the white rock and head up and left following the bolts.

Protection

6 bolts to Mussy Hooks. Highly Recommended to extend from anchors for TR.

Horrible anchor placement. Bring a rope you don't mind trashing or extendo-runners to bring beyond the sharp flake that's a rope eater. Also recommended to rap when done, the lower and/or TR is a killer.

Of the 6 routes on the crag this route and B will yield you the best climbing. Dec 2, 2012
