Description

The crux is at a hand crack midway up the wall. You start by climbing a chimney at the bottom or the slab to its left. The slab will have no protection. You then reach a short hand crack which leads to a small ledge below a RP-sized crack. You continue up a small corner to two small trees. At the trees, you move right to a larger tree where you belay. The last pitch is only 5.7 and is short. You continue up a crack above the belay tree and move to trees on the right. We slung a tree to rap from here. The crux is challenging, and the route is fun.

Location

This climb is on the far left side of the wall. It starts at a chimney which gets smaller at its top. You can walk off to the far right or do a short rap to the anchors on Road Trip and then do another rap to the ground.

Protection

Standard rack up to a #3 Camalot.

Instead of going hard to the right at the end, you can keep going directly up to the first large ledge @ 5.8 PG-13 (43 meters). There is a belay tree up there and to the right once on the ledge. No fixed belay on it though, but you can scramble down and climber's right to a rap. Aug 29, 2015

This is a super fun and varied route, better than it looks, and it protects nicely. Be careful, lots of loose rocks around the belay on top of the first pitch. Apr 30, 2014
