Description [Edit]

What a great place for a sweet little technical piece like this. Around foliage time I can't think of a better place to be. As for the route itself plan on technical, crimpy, footcentric climbing. The holds in the crux are so small I planned on it clocking in around 5.12a but in action it didn't feel quite there. I don't care how hard it is, for a short route it is packed full of fun fun fun.

Start on an obvious rail underneath The first bolt. Move up and left to a crack/undercling. Climb this to the first horizontal crack. Protect. Move right and decipher the intricate hypercrimpy crux that takes you past another bolt and on to a second horizontal crack. protect again and pull one last tricky but delightful move that gets you to better holds, the anchors and top it out to stand on top of the world and take in the view.

The best approach is to climb View finder in one pitch past the belay tree and after clipping the first bolt on pitch 2 break left up an obvious corner that leads to the tree ledge below the mini crag.

Location [Edit]

Easiest way to describe the location is to say, Climb Viewfinder (5.7). That route finishes up a short steep headwall. When you are at the Viewfinder anchors you will see the Worlds Collide anchors just to the left by about 10-15 ft.
The route starts from a very comfortable tree ledge that you can hike to by thrashing up the gully just to the right of the Central Tongue Slabs. Look for a low bolt that is reached by scrambling up a short low angle slab.

Protection [Edit]

2 bolts and a couple finger sized cams. 2 ring bolt anchor.
