Fun face climbing up a short wall. A tiny catcus is growing out of a hold past the second bolt, and will scratch your belly when you make the moves going past it.


The start of this route is extremely well hidden behind a shield of foliage. Some pruning was required for my ascent on 5-29-06, and I suspect some more could be done. The route is on a slab to the right of a short crack, 10' to the left of a tree growing 12 ft up out of the cliff. To face to the left of the crack has two lines of bolts, very close together.


4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor which is directly above a crack (Edmond's Crack 5.10+).

If you are looking for this route on my pictures it is called Sticker Shock, I believe.

There are no plants left underneath this line anymore, and apparently the ground is feet (!) lower than what it used to be. Dyno-ish start for me.

The poor little cactus is gone from the slab. There were spider nests in the hole it left and other holds around it. Have fun!
