I tried in vain to round up a partner that day but everybody had a hangover from the previous nights festivities. I had a hangover too but wanted to climb badly.

P1- Scramble up loose shelves and rock steps making the occasional 5.4 move.Belay from trees.

P2- Climb up over a nice headwall using big holds and a crack maybe a mantle or two. Continue up loose shelves to the top. 5.6


This route faces west. Thrash to the bottom of it and climb the path of least resistance. The first pitch ends at the biggest tree on the West face. You have to make an easy downclimb from the summit, then find the path of least resistance to downclimb back to the tree at the top of the 1st where you can rappel.


A light rack of cams up to 3"
Replacement webbing for the tree raps
