From the top of the second pitch of Daddy Long Legs, angle up and right on the slab. Follow the bolt line slightly left and then head for the crack to the right which leads to the large tree.

The guide book notes that there are two bolts for a rappel station at the tree, but the rappel station is simply webbing around the tree. Bring some webbing in case the ones up there look suspect. Rappel down to the double bolts on the route. It might be good to have some extra webbing at the bolts also. Rappel from the bolts to the top of the second pitch of Daddy Long Legs where there are rap rings. From there rappel down the 11's to the bushy gully.


This climb protects with a pin and six bolts on the slab and with a regular rack in the crack at the top of the climb.

The third bolt is a 1/4" and didn't look that good to me, but there is a nice crack just to the left which protects well.

A very fun route that needs to have its bolts replaced. Of the 6 bolts, 2 are a midway anchor. I felt this was runout after the last bolt, but before the crack. The crack adds a nice change of pace to a good slab route.

I thought this was a nice pitch. As of June 2008 it seems like all but one bolt has been replaced and the belay anchors as well. Don't know who did it, but thanks.

Would be a classic in it's own if the crack gets cleaned up.. Excellent slab moves with good crack climbing thrown in. Didn't find any pins to clip though. Bolts and gear only. Link with DLL and you got a classic for sure!

There are still two pins on this route, both of which look to be from the mid-16th century.

The crack at the top is pretty vegetated and not that great. Crux follows the last bolt.

The upper crack climbed well and clean the other day. Yes there is some foliage, but does it detract from the experience? I think not. The jams are free of the greenery which is what matters. Excellent pitch!
