Description

Merry cherry!! Climb hands that very quickly give way to big hands... then fists... then finishes with off-width. Choose to stay in the crack and work your technique or get pumpy on the layback. Good, quick route.

For the belay, the bottom can be protected with small or number 2.0 cams. Be careful when topping out, there is lots of choss at the pillars top.

Location

Just past the roof with poor rock quality, passing the routes "Flesh and Bone" and "David's Second Movement", you will come to a short chossy scramble up to the bottom of a short 40 foot pillar. Scramble carefully to a decent ledge at the top. The route on the left side of the pillar is a stiff unnamed 5.9. The route on the right is "Merry Cherry". If you end up scrambling up and back down a large pile of boulders that split the main trail you have gone too far!!

Protection

2.0-4.0 cams. Mostly 3.0 and 4.0.
