P1 is nice climbing. Rappel from the top of P1 or finish on P2 of one of the neighbors.

Start: 3' Left (And around the arete) of the overhanging wall that defines the clutch and cruise cave, at the base of a handcrack in the back of a flared groove.

P1 5.5G: Climb the handcrack up to the V-groove up to a large cedar tree on the right with a fixed anchor (shared with clutch and cruise)

P2 5.2G: Step left and climb broken rock to join up with clutch and cruise (or one of its variations)


Trad Gear, Standard Rack, Fixed anchor on a cedar tree.
