Description

Immediately left of the cave entrance, look for a thin line going straight up, near the cave lip.

Bouldery start (11c), but stays challenging to the anchor. Pitch two is a hand crack (10d). Or, both pitches can be combined, as shown in the photo.

Location

Go to the cave, look on the left wall, near the entrance, but right of Roadside Floral Curtain.

Protection

Thin wires and nuts.

I just finished scrubbing about 90% of this route today and it could definitely use some traffic. Stellar .llc finger crack into an interesting little roof. The 10% I didn't clean has some vegetation over easy terrain for the last little bit right below the new bolted anchor for roadside floral curtain (.12a). The guidebook says two pitches but it should definitely be lead as one ~30m pitch from bottom to the anchors for RFC for maximum fun. Toxic Shock -> Even Steven -> Tang makes for great start or end to the day. This route is super fun hop on it people!

The full pitch has been cleaned up (11/25/18) and the ancient pin at the start has been replaced by a bolt (with permission). Get on this route, it's an amazing finger crack with some cool moves over the upper roof. Nov 25, 2018
Where was the pin at the start? Nov 26, 2018

About 10 feet up where you pull the .11 move into the corner. Nov 26, 2018

Maybe it was your pin, Darryl. I don't remember anything about it except it had some crimpy sidepulls at the start. Nov 26, 2018
Little side pulls up featured rock which changes back to typical Index rock once you get to the corner. Fun routes back in there! Keep on cleaning! :) Nov 26, 2018

So glad this has been recleaned. I am excited to get on it when it warms up. Definitely replacing that pin will summon more traffic. Dec 7, 2018
