Stout 5.10d just left of the obvious corner of "Steppin' Stone".

Has sustained sequences but with good pro. A great route that shouldn't be missed for those solid at the grade.


20' or so(?) left of the obvious left facing dihedral of Stepping Stone.


Thin nuts, plenty of small cams. Rap off Steppin Stone or continue on to the top of the spire via 5.10 bolted face climbing.

I'm glad to see that Don Garrett was recognized in the first ascent of this route, instead of Jay Smith. Don is one of the most underrecognized climbers in Placerville, though he has pioneered one hell of a lot of hard routes in the area.
