Climb out past the cactus and paddle up the thin edging veering right as you go up. At the first pitch traverse over ~100 feet and look for another line of bolts just right of Puffin On The Porch. This is more excellent edging up a slightly shorter pitch.


The route is the farthest left (excluding Elysian Fields) on the lower wall area and the second pitch is the farthest right on the upper wall area. It's generally easier to climb the pitches separately. Both are excellent in their own right.


Two bolt anchors on top of each pitch. Bring about 15 draws.

Very wise for the climber and belay to wear a helmet. I pulled a football sized rock off about 70' up and it hitting me in the face and missing my belay by a few feet.

Don't let that scare you though. It was actually a pretty fun climb with two roofs. Probably as easy as 5.10's come.
