shamelessly taking the tree rest before the steep ...


Climb steep pockets and edges to an overhanging upper wall. Stop at the first set of chains for a 5.11d ride, or continue to the upper chains, which goes at 5.12b.


This is the bolted line just to the "Another Doug Reed Route". Down farther left of the 5.12 wall.

I took the biggest whipper of my life on this route 40+ ft. Right below the 1st set of anchor, I was at the bolt but didn't have it clipped. If I ever get on this route again I'm bringing a cam or two!

Whip is big, but its pretty safe(I whipped at the same spot) no need for gear

This is a great line - definitely worth doing while you are waiting for Fuzzy. Tricky sequence at the bottom around the second bolt but once you get through that you are rewarded with easy climbing on big holds. Endurance test to the anchors.
