Description

Nice climb on mostly clean rock. Aesthetics are marred by the insecure steps into the trees for a couple of the belays. The route is notable for tackling significant overlaps in the steepest part of the face.

Location

The route starts at a flake that - if you use your imagination - looks like the Superman emblem (see photo). The original goal was to get to the striking tall spruce tree above the huge arch. The tree is the belay atop P2, and there's another smaller tree a few moves higher if you don't want to make the unprotected walk across the dirt-covered ledge to get to the tree. Two options exist for finishing the route: 5.4 R or 5.10a/b. Rap the route with two 60m ropes.

Protection

Standard rack, include lots of small cams. The fixed pin on P2 has a habit of falling out (the crack is wet and opens/closes seasonally. A Ball Nut might possibly fit if the pin is gone.
