Description

This climb is roughly 300'+ of superb traversing over a valley below. Most rappel after the third pitch because the 4th pitch (5.11d) tops out of the amphitheater and requires a rack to #4.

Location

After hiking down to the bottom of the hill at VOB, fork left and follow the wall until it ends at the amphitheater. First bolts are up on your left side at the end of the trail.

Protection

The second pitch is 12 bolts so bring at least 14 draws. Runners help to reduce rope drag that can get pretty terrible on the second pitch.

If you are going to take the time to put a classic route on the internet, why not do it justice by describing the pitches and how to get there? because your description is basically useless for anyone wanting to climb this that never has before, and now nobody can post a proper description because you had to do it first.
