Decent overhang jug haul. Surprised to find no entries online. Some of the pockets were pretty dirty, the finish to the chains was also dirty as hell. Lil sketch rock but it's got glue ins so why not


Hike south (away from dog walk access) and find the large overhanging boulder on the right side of the trail just beyond manky aclove. Begins with the short arete and follows thru the overhang.


4 bolts + 2 anchors


Excellent route. The roof section obviously stays dry in the rain. 1st to 2nd bolt felt like the crux, but that may have just been because it was wet and slopey. Great clipping stances through the overhang section. Pulling around the bulge at the end was a bit tricky as it was both dirty and exposed to rain.

One bolt around the bulge felt better extended and gives anyone leading after the draws are hung a nice clip, but be mindful when lowering...easy to run the rope over a dogbone/sling on the bulge and cut it if you don't make sure the rope path is clear (ask me how I know). Nov 16, 2017
