    There is a 1 bolt extention and another anchor above the first set. Don't bother going to the upper anchor, the climbing is super easy and chossy.

    sustained, makes you plan your rest well. Very enjoyable lead, well protected and good feet at the anchors. Plus you have an amazing view..

    Apart from the worthless route description, the route is quite good, though the rating is soft.

    This route starts just to the left of the pillar at the top of the approach trail. You can get a hand jam in at the beginning for kicks and giggles.

    This is an ok climb but even better is - Is that a sea turtle fossilized into the wall as you near the top 3rd of this route? Is that even the right geological layer to contain such a fossil? The area is packed with remnants of ancient sea life. I'll try to snap a pic next time Im up it.
