BETA PHOTO: Five Feet and Wine (5.8), Tortilla Flats, White Ro...

Description 

This is climb #19 in the LAM on-line guide,.

This is a surprisingly fun little 5.8 route, for Tortilla Flats anyway.

Start up an awkward hand crack left of the keystone. Step right, across the sloppy ledge behind the keystone (which may be loose!) and head up right toward a fun roof finish. An alternate easy finish avoids the roof by heading left, but the roof protects well.

Location 

Just right of the Lichen Wall, behind a juniper. An obvious chair-sized keystone is wedged in a big slot about 1/2 way up the route.

Protection 

Single rack of cams to 3 inches. Set a gear anchor on top or use the two-bolt anchor.
