Description

The Inseminator start (1st pitch) is about 250 feet from the start of the cliff band and about 100 feet up from the break in the cliff. To the right of a large pine tree, the climb starts from a flat area, uncharacteristic of Ridge One.

The first bolt can be reached from the ground and is worth clipping, because some of the climbs incut edges are really thin. Pull past these edges to a right-leaning crack system, and then crank left over a small but fun roof (10b-ish). A few more feet of slab yields the first set of anchors. Continuing from here is the 12c 2nd pitch of The Inseminator.
