Start of Dr. Greenthumb.

Description 

Pitch One: Find small fixed pin at start clip this. Wiggle up in the slot and clip a bolt. Next make awkward move up into corner system. Stay right in hand crack, and then stay left in the dihedral face climbing where necessary to two bolt anchors. 160 feet, 5.8.

Pitch Two: Move right from anchors to airy hand crack start. Climb straight up crack until you move left past two protection bolts and a dead tree to the top. Two bolts plus gear to top. 190 feet, 5.8. Classic Vallecito quartzite.

Location 

Route lies in large gully between slabs and High Times Wall in the dark stone dihedral. Follow trail past the bottom of the Penthouse to the south that follows the top of the cliff. Walk down around on the right to a nice large ledge with anchors. Rap the route with a single 60m (be careful on the final rap it barely makes it down ymmv), and let the games begin. Please do not walk down to the bottom of this climb as it causes severe erosion. Rap in instead.

Protection 

Standard rack and lots of long draws for second pitch. All anchors are bolted.
