Description

This climb starts at a natural cave formed by rocks. Go up an initial slab to a dirt ledge. Step across the ledge and continue up the arête to the first bolt. Go up to a small rock ledge. Clip the next bolt and carefully move up the steeper face.

Be careful as there are some loose holds and plates on the face above.

Make a high clip to a bolt (bolt is high because the large flake below is not fully attached). Continue up steep sections, but with good holds. Clip one of the rappel ring bolts before pulling over the top of the wall. Rappel down using the two rappel ring bolts.

First ascent: Mark Fletcher and Josh Shifflet, February 18, 2012.

Fun route if you're down that way already, or if you're new to leading slab.
As of 6/4/17 there's heavy growth of lichen all over the whole face and WARNING there's a lunch box sized block that's really loose in the flake above the second bolt. Test pull your holds before committing your entire weight on it. We tried marking it with chalk but I don't know how long it'll last since this route doesn't seem to see much traffic. Jun 4, 2017
