This route has some stellar moves, and would easily be one of the best at OH8, except that it has a number of factors working against it.

One of the cam placements is right on top of a big sprig of poison oak that grows right out of the face, there's loose rock in the roof section at the top of the climb, and the anchors are a real pain to deal with.

If these items - and the fact that this rocky section of the path is a welcome home for rattlesnakes - does not deter, you'll find some truly engaging movement on the first face, followed by pumpy, jug throws to ascend the overhanging bulge at the end.


About half way down the approach trail there is a second rocky section in the path. Look for the bolt line in the middle of the face.


Quickdraws and midsized cams. Anchors are two bolts set one above the other with a chain running between the two. One rap ring. Not ideal.
