Description [Suggest Change]
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 [Suggest Change]
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 [Suggest Change]
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.
