Description

Start with a high hand in a crack. High step to your nipples and move left to a pocket. Toe hang trickery gains you the thin crack rail and more trickery using nipple holds gets you to the top out jugs. The body movement on this is awesome.

Location

Walk straight up a worn trail that starts in between 2 short "log posts" directly across the street from the Enlightenment Ridge campsite. Follow the trail straight uphill to the ridge. When you get to the ridge head left for 50 feet and then straight down the other side on a faint trail for 300 feet. The face is on the downhill side so you won't see it until you're below it. Lots of potential hard climbing down here so getting lost isn't necessarily a bad thing.

If you hop your feet onto the bulge while hanging the seam, you can make a big move straight to the good pocket and skip the shallow dish and nips. Overall probably easier that way, but may not work for shorties. Great line though, sweet holds and sequence! Dec 18, 2015

The spot is definitely tricky to find. Basic rule of thumb is that it's between the enlightenment ridge and happy hunting ground camp sites but on the other side of the road. If you think you're north/south of the 2 parallels then you're too far.

The problem itself is great, but you might want to clean the top before climbing it. There is a really good crimp seam that can get covered in debris. But once it's clean the topout is super nice and easy. Sep 29, 2015

Spotted this one last year and spent some time breaking off bad holds and cleaning the problem (was totally covered in moss etc.). Sadly, I never got a send out of it, but will be back this week to give it a go. You must have found it after I stopped going to Pine. Glad you think it's as good as I thought it would be when I stumbled upon it during a drunken wander after a day of sending! Apr 27, 2015
