Description

Crimp and edge your way up the steepest part of the wall.
A distinct crux right off the ground (5.10d) leads to 35 feet of sustained and unprotected moves on thin but excellent features (5.10b/c R).
At a good stance past the crux there is a place for some quality wires.
The uppermost part of the climb is a section of exposed 5.8 on buckets and dishes.

*a top-rope can easily be set up by combining a boulder and bushes for an anchor. Make sure to bring plenty of webbing or static line to extend the anchor over the lip*

Location

Approach Distances to Upper Ridge Area
from:
Intersection of Fox Cyn. trail and Foothill trail - .5 miles
The Foot - 1.15
The Hideout - .85

Protection

Nothing for the first 35 feet (the crux). A thin crack above the ledge toward the top offers an opportunity for some small stoppers.
