#2. Groovy Baby Groovy, 5.6.

Description 

For me the crux was the 8 foot offwidth near the top. The rock is sharp and painful on the knees. Just right of the second bolt is 5.6 slabby. Start as for Hook "N" Ladder (clipping the first two bolts for protection), but stay in the groove right of the bolts. Gain a small stance on top of a wedged bolder. Clip the bolt on the left face (last bolt for the face climb " Tip Toe Thru the Tulips") and squeeze up the offwidth. I soloed this route to gain access to the top of the rock to set anchors for the other climbs.

Location 

1/3 of the way up the west side of the ridge. South facing. Rap off.

Protection 

3 draws, 3 bolts from surrounding climbs. Runout a bit between bolts 2 and 3 Two chain anchor. May want to add some webbing to the chains if your going to top rope the climbs. It will reduce rope drag.
