BETA PHOTO: Knuckle Balls


Much better and steeper than it appears from the ground. Easy yet runout slab leads up to the steep mid-section where protection is not obvious but good. Move up on good finger buckets and a nice tcu crack then aim up and left (crux) and crank up on to a ledge. Traverse left to begin climbing an excellent right facing corner system that take you to the top. Rap from a beautiful large cedar.


Starts on the left end of a slab down and right from the first/second base routes. Cross to the left side of the often wet gulley/chimney before reaching the steeper wall. The good stuff stays dry and well left of the wet chimney.


Double set of cams tiny to hand size and a set of stoppers, long runs especially for the anchor tree.
