dirty corner traverse


starts just left of old route.start just left of the small roof about 3 feet off the ground reading for a nice fist sized pod. then climb the corner using pockets and horizontals placing solid gear the whole way. then climb the face straight up to the pine tree.

there is also a variation that is the direct start to the right up a small flaring left facing flake(5.7).


on main wall just left of the old route right where the trail intersects with the cliff.


normal rack, small nuts, cams to size 3, and maybe a small pink tri cam.

This route has been climbed for many years. It looks way better cleaned up. You might have a different finish tho. we always called it 5.5-5.6. Thanks for posting it!

If this was more sustained it would be a very good route, however the two foot ledges you encounter every 10ish feet does detract from the climb. The climbing itself is very fun though!

Enjoyed this climb, really fun. More vertical/juggy than a lot of the other routes at Rines Hill, a nice chance of pace. There's groundfall/ledgefall potential if leading, easy to top rope though if preferred.
