DescriptionThis route has additional lower pitches, but these are mingled with a lot of woods-walking.
P1: Climb the border of gray rock and black, up and leftward. The slab steepens; fortunately cracks offer some protection passing the hardest moves. Reach a brushy ledge, step left and climb to a higher ledge. Gear belay
P2: Climb slab, passing one brushy horizontal before reaching easier-angled rock. Scramble up and right to a large, blueberry-carpeted ledge.
P3 30'(The Sky High Pitch): Walk right to the bottom of a short, steep wall. Climb an easy crack to its top.
If you are interested, the original route starts on the slab above the point where the Belleview Path diverges from the East Path. The first "pitch" climbs an unprotected slab via knobs to a ledge, pops over a low wall, then moves right to the low-angle, black slab.
