Description

Location: 38.842136, -120.045307

1st pitch: 5.5 with a few 5.7+ moves
2nd pitch: 5.9
3rd pitch: 5.9

First pitch is 5.5ish with a few 5.7+ moves just before the anchor. 2nd and 3rd pitches have 5.9 moves as the climb gets progressively steeper. Work out call signals and multipitch protocol before climbing as hearing your partner from the 2nd anchor may be difficult due to the angle of the wall.

Rappelling NOT advised (see comments).

Walk off options:
1) Follow the rock face climbers right until it ends (maybe 150m?), this is the start of a gully on the backside. Descend the gully on the backside as it wraps around to the front. Longer, but a dirt hike and not as steep as option (2).
2) Walk off climber's Right and find your way down 3rd class slab back to the trail. Slab to the trail can be hard to find at first; keep an eye out for cairns and follow them closely for a more gradual descent. Note that the slab descent may be more dirty or wet from snow melt early in the season, which can complicate things.

Named in memory of Mitch Underhill--local climber, adventurer, fire fighter, father, friend and overall hero.

Protection

Well protected. 11 quick draws. 60m rope.

Final pitch is easier low-angle climbing but bolt spacing becomes longer.

Belays are on ledges. 2 bolts with hangers at every anchor including the top. You may have to keep your eyes peeled for the top anchor. Don’t use the tree.
