Description

Climb starts below a giant pine tree and follows an obvious corner and crack system straight up to the tree, which can be slung as a belay or rap station (or you can scramble up another 10 feet to the top). A challenging, sustained but well-protected trad lead. The middle section of the climb is slightly overhung, and the crux includes an exhilarating step across the gap between two walls.

Location

The route starts approximately 100 feet to the left of Spanish Bombs, in an area which used to be inaccessible (before a recent forest fire) because of heavy brush and thorn cover.

Protection

Can be well protected with an assortment of small to large cams and tricams. A couple of long slings will prevent rope drag through the overhanging section.
