DescriptionThis is an incredible sport route that doesn't seem like it should exist in the natural world. Jugs and hand jams in horizontal cracks lead up a steep wall.
Getting to the first bolt is a bit funky, but trust me, it's worth it. Start up the corner left of the bolt (this is the beginning of the trad line called Reclining Pine). When you're level with the bolt, traverse right to reach it via a horizontal finger crack and smeary feet. A finger sized cam works well if you'd prefer to protect this bit. Alternatively, when I climbed it there was a perfect length stick on the ledge that people were obviously using as a stick clip (bring your own tape!).
After clipping the first bolt, enjoy heavenly steep and positive climbing all the way to the anchor. The hard part is choosing between jugs and bomber hand jams while trying not to get pumped out!
