A surprisingly-nice route. Cleaned up, this would be highly recommended.
Climb the crack to its end and continue up the slab without protection (5.5), trending slightly right to reach easy going near the right edge of the wall (one can start climbing here by traversing in from the brushy gully next door, thus avoiding the unprotected slab moves).
Climb through the steep headwall using two vertical cracks, then continue up the face along its right edge to an overhang. Break this through the notch (airy and scary, but well-protected), climbing up to a sloping pine tree ledge. We belayed off a giant pine tree growing right at the top of the cliff.


This route lies on the cliff 150 yards left of and lower than the main face. To its right, a fern and bramble choked gully runs fifty or more feet uphill, alongside what becomes a large right-facing corner on the right edge of this cliff.
It begins at the 15' tall vertical crack close to the lower right edge of the face.


Standard rack, doubles of 1/2" - 1" cams.
DESCENT: Rappel off the giant pine tree, heading climber's right into the gully, then walk down and around to the base. A single rope won't reach the bottom of the climb!
