DescriptionOn the far right side of Wall 1, there is a diamond shaped face ~1/3 of the way up the wall. Navigating this diamond is the crux of the climb.
Either (1) climb the offwidth on the right, (2) pull over the bulge on the face, or (3) bypass to the left. (1) and (2) offer a few moves ~5.10. Really a 5.5 with a V0 boulder problem in the center.
The original line started very far left and traversed just above the poison oak (now removed) to the base of the bulge. We were hunting for the steepest/thinnest part of the wall, so the route shot way right, then back left to the tree. Now, I recommend starting directly underneath the diamond and climbing up the pocketed face. Once over the diamond, take the cracks back left to the oak tree.
