Begin by climbing a steep right angling ramp.

As the rock turns more vertical surmount the crux by wandering left or right rather than straight up around mid height.

Finish on awesome underlings and jugs as you make your way to the top of the formation.


Left most route on "The Draw Pile"

Start from the parking pullout as for the other climbs. When the path takes the first right turn continue straight uphill to the base of the cliff.


8 bolts to chain anchors

This route is kind of a tragedy. The sequence is fun and wandery with a variety of cool holds, but the bolting turns it in to a total terror show if you're not walking 5.9. Even if you're walking it, you really don't want to take any of the falls.

With a re-bolt this could be a fun route for many people to work on, but in its current state I'd encourage new leaders to stay away. If anyone does know the FA party, I'd love to be in touch about moving a couple bolts to make this more accessible. Feb 7, 2018

Cool holds but many are suspect. None broke but they look iffy. Bolting is not so perfect. Would not recommend to a leader who is maxed out at 5.9. But I liked it ok. Feb 26, 2017

Contrived route, loose rock, 30 pound death block near the anchor.
The rest of this wall was great !! Nov 11, 2016

No clue who bolted this other than it was after 2009 (the bolts have the manufacture date on them).

Happy to rename this if someone knows the actual name. This is what we called it. May 20, 2016
