Description

Scramble up onto the grassy ledge on the south side of the 4th above the apple tree. Start up the large, right-facing corner, and stay to the left through the bulge (3" cam). Continue up the obvious, right-facing dihedral to about mid-height where a thin, steep, difficult-to-protect 5.9+ crux is encountered. This is heady and bold! Stay in the classic corner to its top. I'm sure others have climbed this obvious corner before, I think I notice old pin scars at the crux. After much needed scrubbing and trundling (thus the name), this classic line is cleaning up nicely....

Protection

Thin gear to 3".
