Starts just left of VJs. Start climbing the slab above a few small trees towards the line of bolts. You will pass 4 bolts in total moving up the slab. Some technical slab climbing is required, but there are a few small features for fingers and feet to hold onto. Above the last bolt is a slight runout on easier ground to the tree anchor. You can bring a cam and protect it if it makes you feel better, but by the time you get there you are very close to the anchor.

This climb shares a tree anchor with EthWheel Crack and Steel Monkey.


Off of the hiking trail, hike up the stone stairs towards VJs. It is on the left end of the small belay area.


4 Bolts, Tree anchor
