Description

A cool climb with a few fun, pumpy moves mixed with easy climbing.

Location

Rightmost route on the crag. Shaded by a couple of oak trees.

Start on the crack right of Buckwheat. Then follow the bolts up the face.

(Instead of using the bottom crack for trad protection, some may instead use the first bolt or two of Buckwheat.)

Protection

Quickdraws, small nut to protect the crux, and optional cams for upper portion of the climb. Bolted anchors.

Photos

This route actually does not share the first two bolts with the adjacent route, but instead starts on the thin crack on gear just south of the oak tree. Much nicer start and more in line. One of the best routes at the crag in my opinion. Don't cheat left at the finish, their are great crimps if you look. Also, don't use the detached block in the crack at the overhanging finish for hand or foot holds, it will go some day. Feb 8, 2015
