Description

This route got its name from the significant number of bushes removed from the cracks. At this time, it is unclear if this route was the first ascent. At the 3rd pitch, there are some old pitons that trended off to the right of our route.

P1. 5.9. Follow a prominent crack through some small roofs to a large ledge. It is best belayed from the opposite side of the creek.

P2. 5.9. Trend slightly right towards the base of the large arete with a huge block sticking out above. Go straight up the arete, and tunnel up through a short offwidth section formed by the large overhanging block. Belay from a small ledge on top of the large block.

P2 variation. 5.8? When the arete is reached, go up around the right side. Continue up a nice crack to the right of the overhanging block. Belay from the small ledge atop the overhanging block.

P3. 5.8. Trend slightly left up the face and around to the start of the left-facing dihedral. Follow the dihedral up about 30 feet before going left up a prominent crack. Top out on the ridge. There are many loose blocks up near the ridge. Be aware when building the final anchor.

Location

On the west side of the creek (opposite side from the wall), there is an old trail with a large cairn. Turn towards the creek at the cairn and look for the downed tree in the creek. Start on the lone boulder just downstream from the downed tree and to the left of the prominent crack/roof.

Protection

A standard rack up to 3".
