  • Description 

    This is a somewhat indistinct line at first, but it is actually not hard to follow. The climbing is on a mix of jugs sidepulls and slopers, and the gear is reasonably plentiful in the carious features found along the way until after the ledge.

    Toward the right end of that cliff there is a short, right-leaning, right-facing dihedral. Start on the face just left of this and head up the wall on horizontals and sidepulls, just left of the arete and dihedral, placing gear where ever and when ever possible. Above that corner, continue up slightly right-leaning cracks, creating a near B-line for the single obvious tree above the cliff. At 60 feet, you will encounter a ledge with 2 really nice prickly pear cacti on it (currently blooming). The cacti are back away from the edge on either side of the line and are easily avoided. Once on the ledge, head up the steepest section of a prow that lies just below and right of the summit tree and run it out slightly to reach the tree.


    This route is one of a few (now) documented lines on the right hand side of 'A Short Cliff With 3 Cracks In It.'
