Description [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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 [Suggest Change]

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.
