Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Closures & Rockfall Mitigation Project Details

Description

While exploring this route, we found an old Oyster shell on the belay ledge. I imagine that it was the remainder of a romantic picnic lunch shared by a bold couple 20 years ago.

The crux is a series of lay back moves from the second bolt to past the third. The roof near the top has sharp positive holds and is a grade easier than the crux.

Location

The Oyster Bar is right of PTO and left of Creek Nation. It starts just right of the gully/crack system that PTO crosses.

Protection

9 bolts, chain anchors.

There are enough sharp edges at the lip of the roof that rap descent is probably safer than lowering off.

Fun line! We got the 2nd ascent after it was freshly bolted. 3rd bolt crux is a neat sequence of (well protected) moves and the roof is a bit of a puzzle too. Thanks, Alan! Sep 26, 2016

I really love this route... the roof is super juggy and fun. Between 2nd and 3rd bolt is a little bit of a tricky crux. Sep 6, 2017

There was a snake on the route. WATCH YOUR HAND PLACEMENT. Also is I agree it’s definitely safer to rappel versus lowering as there are some sharp edges. Jul 15, 2018
