BETA PHOTO: Third route to the west of the access ramp at Clif...


Life finds a way even on a volcanic basalt wall. Nature magically flourishes. Climb up and slightly to the left following the clean rock as you run parallel the waterfall of moss running down the right side of the route. As are you near the top head right for a few feet to hit the chains. This route is slightly tougher than the route to its left and slightly taller but still has nice big holds making it not too challenging. Heads-up: There are some loose rocks in the right mossy area.


This is the third climb west of the access ramp on the main wall. Look for the route just left of the mossy water-stained basalt.


3 bolts with hangers to chains. There is also a single anchor at the top set back from the edge to safely reach the chains for TR.
