DescriptionWe are offering this as an alternative to Schooldaze. Based on the comments I'm seeing, this is a better-protected first pitch. Three reasonable pitches gets you to the bathtub belt, and then you're back on Schooldaze. The first pitch is the attraction (the second pitch is really easy), and overall I thought it was a better line than Ben Schmitt's guidebook would indicate.
LocationThis is the obvious, orange, right-angling corner just a minute or so after you start uphill from the riverside approach trail.
P1. Angle up right to a tree.
P2 goes straight up off belay to easy terrain; belay at large tree at apex of tree island on your left.
P3. Continue up vague right-facing features to smaller, solitary evergreen tree.
P4 is the bathtubs leading to the finish of your choice.
