Be careful on the ledge/flake up to the first bolt, there are some very large loose rocks up there, and the entire things is covered in leaves/dirt/bushes. The climbing is easy, but make sure you test everything you grab. The bolt is too high for a stick clip. "PG".

A crimp or two came loose and pulled off while we were climbing, and I suspect that may have happened a few times since this was graded 11B. Seems harder, perhaps due to missing holds.

Really scenic climb though. Jul 31, 2017
