Description

Low-angle gully on the right side of right-of-center, at the high point of the sand apron. The route follows the line between the light-gray and dark-gray faces. Route follows like a series of mostly trivial boulder problems separated by vegetation ledges and bushes, with the best climbing on the right side of this open corner. Trickiest part is near the top. Due to extensive vegetation, expect the highest potential for mosquitos here. Protection may be run-out and is generally not needed often. Can be done in 3 rope lengths but a belay partner will not be able to hear or see you. Do not waste your time here, I did it so you don't have to.

Location

Easiest access is from center cliff, hike right and up the sand, to the high point of the sand apron, about 125 feet above the road.

Protection

Small rack up to #2 cam is useful, plan on run out-placements
