Description

Dirtier, uglier and more neglected then a pack of stray dogs in the rail yard, this "Far Nears" route offers a few fun moves at the top of P2. The first pitch starts with a scramble up a dirt slope passing several trees before getting into a few technical moves alongside large right-facing blocks that eventually lead to under a roof just shy of a tricky belay spot near a hanging cedar tree.

The "Purple Dick" lists this first pitch as 5.1, however this climber's experience would suggest otherwise. (120 ft)

P2 begins by the tree in the large right-facing corner with jagged overhanging rocks. Work the corner past a particularly triangular blade of rock (crux) to the top. (50 ft)

Location

Dirt ramp approach past DSB

Descent: Walk off from the top.

Protection

PG - Standard Gunks Rack

Be cautious of loose rock
