Cherry Sours

Description 

Start at the two big pockets then work straight up. About half way up is the crux, which veers you about 3 feet to the right then keep going up. A couple moves later, you will hit loads of holds so just head straight to your anchor.

Beware some holds are loose, dirty, and sketchy! I pulled a 1'x3'x5" chuck of rock off on my first move on another route on this wall. Most holds are fine but just keep a heads up.

The crack to the right is easier than the face. You can climb the entire crack and it's still a fun climb. Or if you want a challenge, follow the route straight up rather than veering to the right. Lots of potential for variations on this route.

Location 

This route lays a few faces to the left of Smoke Signals. It should be the first face you come to once you get to the wall. I didn't find Barrel Full O'Braves so I am unsure if it is left or right of it.

Protection 

I just set up a top rope on a tree right above the route. The tree is about 15' from the ledge so bring plenty of webbing. I didn't see many if any spots to place gear but I also didn't look too hard. If you hike about 50 yards down the wall, you can scramble up to get on top of the wall.
