APPROACH - Two approaches: 1) From the base area (base of Groov'n and the "Arches") Slither, crash and bushwhack down and around the toe to the base of the climb.

2) [Probably easiest] Climb "Groov'n (or any other climb that leads to the Groov'n anchors) and then traverse to the Erosion Groove anchors [see photo posted to Twirpy Girl]. Rap to the base.

START: At the bottom of toe of the slab, about 25 ft left, and 25 ft below the large Oak Tree of Groov'in. Bring a wire brush for the first 20-25 feet.

Climb up the thin seam (protection on the right) until it becomes a crack/groove. About 150 ft up the crack/groove ends at an inside corner. (Before getting here one can do a rising traverse to the Groov'n/Washboard anchor; to this point the climb is about 5.4) Climb over the corner (5.6 -5.7 PG/R) to a clump of trees. Do a 2 rope rap or...
Pitch 2 - Continue to trees above. (Easy)


A good selection of medium cams and nuts.
