Description

This is the furthest left bolted line on Upper S-Curve, left of Little Feat. The Ruckmans'’ guide dings the route as "[p]“retty contrived”" and gives it no stars, but it beats the gym IMO and the climbing is, well, at least momentarily entertaining --– just keep your expectations in check. Begin in a nice shady spot between two juniper trees, climb an easy slab, then follow the line of five bolts diagonalling right out the overhang above. The climbing stays to the right of the bolts, except for the last one, which seemed to me to be the crux.

Location

Walk left to last line of bolts.
