Description 

The route starts left of 'Da Kine Line'. Locate a bolt about 15' up, that marks the start of the route.

Pitch 1: Climb up some dirty rock past 2 bolts to a bolted anchor in the corner underneath 3 big obvious roofs 100', 5.9+.

Pitch 2: This is what you came for. Climb up and right past the roofs and multiple bolts to a bolted belay shared with 'The Green Mile'. Bring some gear as well as your quickdraws on this pitch. It's mixed not sport 100', 5.11c.

Pitch 3: Easier pitch to exit the climb. 5.8.

Location 

Rappel the 'Da Kine Line'.

The start of 'High Times' is located 30-50' left of the 'Da Kine Line'. There is a bolt right off the ground to show you the way.

Protection 

Quickdraws and a standard rack to #3 Camalot. All belays are bolted.

I was kinda nervous at the start of this climb, but when I started climbing the climbing actually turned out to be really good with bomber gear. The top of the 5.11 pitch was a little desperate, but the crux is protected by a nice shiny bolt. Good find and lead guys, probably was pretty exciting to put this route up.
