Matt Toney running an extra lap up Grigio. Bummer ...


What it lacks in height, it makes up for in quality. A blank looking, vertical face that is easier than it looks. Fun technical moves; the holds are there but you probably wont see any chalk on them. Starts above a stump, which may or may not have branches growing from it. In the shade all afternoon long.


Located in the Vineyard on the left vertical face, a small, a recently developed area above and to the left of the Bear. To get there walk 15 to 20 feet left of the 5.10 warm ups on the Bear till you reach the downhill trail before the knoll. Opposite, to the right, of the downhill trail there is a 3rd class scramble. From there, you can see two shiny anchors to Brazin shining between the trees up above.


3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
