Start far left of the cliff,behind twin maple trees in a triangular crack system. Gear here to get into larger crack to the left and follow to the end. Getting off the slab here until getting back on at the 2nd bolt keeps grade at 5.7. Variation: Stay on the slab at the end of this crack and clip 1st bolt-5.10
There are 4 bolts on this pitch, which ends at 2 ring bolt anchor (approximately 85')
2nd pitch goes up and left past 6 bolts to another 2 ring bolt anchor(approximately 120') 5.5
3rd pitch goes directly above anchor past 5 bolts to a tree anchor( approximately 60') 5.6


Route is far left of the cliff.
Can do 3 raps with a 70m rope or walk off down trail [ NOTE: The original submitter had "60m rope" but since it's been confirmed a 60m does NOT reach on the P2 rap I've changed the text for safety reasons. see also COMMENT by "SES" RHall Admin, June 2017.]


Combination gear and quick draws
2 ring bolt anchors and cordelette anchor at a tree

VERY nice route, nice mix of P1's non-slab-climbing START and the top of P1, as well as P2 & P3's clean, rough slab.

With my old knees somewhat limiting movements, I though the move left from one crack system to the 2nd crack about 35 ft up on P1 was the crux, "sans 5.10". If 5.10 slab moves aren't your thing, but at the same time you don't want to scramble up the dirt footsteps to bolt#2, I though the 5.10 went fine at about "A-0 / 5.8+ to 5.9-" using the "silver handhold".

A really fun route. The second pitch is too long to rappel with a single 60 meter rope, a 70 will make it, otherwise bring a tag line. Also tape is nice for the first pitch, the rock is somewhat sharp. May 9, 2017
