Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A down-right spectacular route. A burly start leads to the second bolt, with a slight runout that can unnerve as the ground is rather close. A stem stance in the groove allows a decent no hands rest. The first crux is the traverse of the face. Take your pick of the holds, there are bunch of equally small and tenuous holds. Different body types suit different combinations of them. A big move leads to a rewarding jug, though with solid potential for a barn door. Some thin footwork will take you to the ledge with another good rest. The second crux takes the crack/weakness straight up the face. It's not as technical as the first crux but much pumpier.

Location 

the first climb in the area, furthest to the right. A belay bolt is available for the petite belayer.
