Somewhat thin sven slab climbing. Most difficult part is first 20 or 30 feet.


Two to the left of Quaker Oats, start on small boulder


3 bolts, one or two very small gear placements possible. One very large anchor at top behind tree.

You should definitely consider placing a small-to-medium piece at the undercling flake above he 2nd bolt. The runout to the 3rd bolt is gauranteed ground fall and somewhat spicey.

Agree with Craig, runout with groundfall potential. So why the PG-13 rating. A piece in the undercling would probably bust the flake holding a fall.
