Description 

If the quality of climbing that exists on the first 30 feet continued for the entire route, this would be classic! Unfortunately the upper portion is a bit crumbly and dirty. This route would benefit greatly from more traffic. Climb up the thin bouldery start making use of the small but positive holds to reach a large ledge (crux). Traverse left to gain access to a dihedral in white rock. Follow for 15 ft and pull a small overhang and continue up a finger crack in a dihedral to reach the large roof. Traverse out left to the lip of the roof and pull through a v-shaped slot. Follow the crack systems over a lichen covered face to the top. Beware of rope drag as you pull the large roof near the end. Extend slings on the lower portion of the route.

Location 

Head downstream toward the orchard wall proper, just past Ritz Cracker, as you round the first corner, locate the very thin crack on a smooth grey face.

Protection 

Very small pro for the bottom, standard rack for the rest. No anchors at top, trees.

To get down with a single 60M rope, just walk 50 ft upstream and locate the top anchors on Ritz Cracker.
