Description

Good adventure up mostly 4th-low 5th class rock. Fun outing with amazing views. Protection is very sparse and not great.

Note: For most of this climb, a fall for the leader( and sometimes the second) would not be comfortable. Given that you are far from medical help and you can't bail easily off the climb, don't fall.

P1: Climb up 100ish ft and traverse left 50ish ft to avoid the steeper stuff. There is a good belay with a decent crack as the steepness tapers off. 5.7R 150'

P2: Start by pulling over the steeper stuff (5.7) and continue up wandering 4th class to a set of juniper trees and another steep section. Build belay here. 5.7PG13 190'

P3: Pull another steep section (5.7, left of belay) continue up a ramp(right, avoiding the gully left) to more 4th class wandering. Built a belay in a really large ledge with a crack below steeper stuff. 5.7R 150'

P4: Climb steeper 5th class rock up to a chimney. On top of the chimney there is a large pine tree to build a belay. 5.7R 190'

P5-6: Wander up 4th class slabs. You can throw in some fun 5th class in there too if you wander the right way. There is a killer tree/crack/shady belay about half way up. 4th 300'

Location

The longest route on the rock to the knob.

Protection

1 60 m rope. 1-2 sets of cams up to a 5. Gear is sparse and not always good.
