Description [Suggest Change]

Named after the famous 4x4 trail that starts at the end of Ice House Road at Loon Lake and runs overland 22 miles to Lake Tahoe.

Fun climbing through a dike and straight up the slab. The start to and above the first bolt is the crux - a spot is helpful until the first bolt is reached.  The difficulty lets up quite a bit as the rock becomes more featured and less steep.  The anchors (Mussy Hooks) are a little to the right as you near the end just above some large horizontal dikes. The anchor is shared with Slick Slice of Slab.

Location [Suggest Change]

Look for the area of large bushes at the bottom of the sport climbs with two large boulders below the bushes. This climb starts just below the lowest boulder.

Protection [Suggest Change]

All bolts, maybe 7 or so
