If the 35-yr-old 1/4" bolts were replaced, this would garner additional stars as a lead. With a directional or two it can be Top Roped using 2 ropes from the "Reelin'" Dbl Bolt anchor.

Pretty sustained climbing on excellent rock.

START: About 20 ft left of "Tao of Dow" on a slab with an arching overlap above. Up the slab and over the overlap, then up diagonally left 20-30 ft (coming within 10 ft or so of "Reelin' ") to a small stance (bolt) then straight up to a steeper swell (bolt), climb over and up the steep slab above (crux?) finally diagonalling left to the dbl bolt (3/8") anchor of "Reelin'".


Start from the tree ledge 30-40 ft up the cliff. The START is below, and about 20 ft left of the tree growing 20ft up the cliff on the route "Tao of Dow.


3 bolts and small gear
