Access Issue: Seasonal Route Closure Details

Description [Suggest Change]

The route follows a vertical crack. You can avoid the first move by walking out onto the large boulder. When the crack ends, move maybe 6 feet left until you can mantle up onto the ledge (that is maybe 10' below the top). A step or two back to the right and you can top out. This short route might just possibly pack in more pumpy climbing than any other 5.8 at PK. TR VARIATION - Start 10 ft to the left and climb the arete to the end of the leftwards traverse. Terrific (5.10)

Location [Suggest Change]

Behind the dead hemlock tree that's just right of the huge "LA Roof" roof.

2016 update - the hemlock has been cut down. Look for the stump (and the cut tree lying on the ground).

Protection [Suggest Change]

Adequate gear if leading's your thing. Normal stuff up to #3 Camalot.
