Description

Originally rated PG13, the consensus among the few who have climbed it in the past years is R. The line remains dirty, can be wet for months, and is a challenge at 10.a.
All of that said, this is a really good line, almost solid smearing w/few 'holds'.
Head straight up from the belay towards the mini roof/step. First bolt is 15'+, and it is heady pulling over the step. Pass 2 more bolts ad then be prepared for 20' of unrelenting 5.10 smear-fest. Just don't think about the fall potential, the roof below, of the dirt and munge.

Location

From the 'Plumas County' road sign, head up the dirty gully to a large ledge and a bolted belay. From the ledge, the first route to the left. All the routes on Plumas Slab start at this belay.

Protection

4 bolts and bolted anchor.

Still the buttons. Definitely gets your head going. There are days when i think it would be worth going out and getting this place cleaned up; then i wake up. Mar 28, 2017

This route was dirty and spooky 25 years ago. Can't imagine it got better with time. As a side note, we never went back to replace the button heads on Plumas Slab. Don't know what the bolts are like now. Oct 24, 2016
