Finding shady relief on a hot summer afternoon. (...


An enjoyable line moving from jug to jug, with a bit of mental stimulation from figuring out where the next big hold is. Sidepulls abound, occasionally sloping footholds, and fun movement awaits.


The fourth-from-the-left line in the most uphill group of routes. Blank, dark rock to the left, blank lighter rock to the right (containing a bolted line, Twisted Tit, which has two tiny, nipple-like holds near the second bolt).


6 bolts, ring anchors.

More unique, awkward climbing, even more so than the .10c. The good holds are all there, but you do need to hunt around for them as they're hidden pretty well. The tree/bush near the last bolt is kind of annoying. Still a fun route.

Yeah, a few awkward moves. I climbed straight through the bush, which was a little painful, but I felt like it was more obvious that way. If you're willing to eat some leaf, I say go straight up, otherwise you can do some fancy drop knee stuff to the left, like Tristan did. Fun climb.

I like the bush. I meant I like the route. Fun.

I thought this was pretty fun! I just wish is was a little longer. Mostly stuck to the right of the bolts and the left of this infamous bush.
