Description

This is a short climb with a short crux, but no less, it is good fun. The bottom protects with OW gear (old #4 Camalot or #5 C4 Camalot), but the low crux is more about a jug and sidepulls than actually battling your way up with OW technique.

Start from the ground up on the rock into the bulge. Hit a good jug left of the crack, and pull through the bulge to get established above. Place a few smaller cams (hand sized), and continue up and left on easier territory.

Remain mindful that the flakes at 2/3 height are stacked and interlocked but perhaps not forever, and if one goes, they all will, to very negative effect.

Location

The route is on the lower tier at Pebble Beach and is easily identified by the wide crack through the lower bulge that thins once through the steep section.

Protection

One large cam (4-5") and then a few hand-sized cams. The belay up top is on a cordalette around a large tree to the left or right. Walk off the ledge to the North 7-8 meters.
