Description [Suggest Change]

This is a somewhat older line that has fallen into obscurity due to a lack of comphehensive documentaion in recent years. It is short but climbs great rock, and is worth a romp up if you're in the area. There is also a newer 2nd pitch (different name) that climbs the outrageous fin of rock just above the ledge near the top - more to come on this...

Start on top of the large spike shaped boulder - "Space wrangler" goes straight up here. Instead, step out right and follow corners and great edges up the wall past a bolt to gain the ledge. Either belay here or continue up for a belay in the bushes on top and around left.

Location [Suggest Change]

On opposite wall (south) from the Apricot buttress when descending gully (left about half way down).

Protection [Suggest Change]

Light rack of small cams and wires. One bolt. Not hard climbing but it is a bit spicy, so beware.
