  • Description 

    Cool climbing on good-size holds. The route still needs a little cleaning but offers a nice pitch of steep climbing right off the road.


    On the right side of the South Face just right of the "Joker and the Thief".


    Four clips will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

    Fun bouldery feeling route, but a bit dirty. I suggest belaying off to the side to avoid being showered with grit.

    Meh. Short, dirty, and lots of crumbly rock. If I were a scout leader, I would take the kids here every day for a summer and eventually all of the duff might get cleaned off. Or maybe not.

    Still shedding/crumbly. Good climbing on poorly cleaned rock- might get better with time. Hard to on-sight, as above the roof is a semi-blind balance move, but not hard once you know what to do. Bolt just above the roof is placed awkwardly for the rope if you go up and fall on that, which is the crux. Maybe a long draw (10-12" and beefy) would be best so you don't cut your rope or sling on the flake as your taut rope slices across it.

    Cleaned up a little more last night. Just stay right once you pull the roof and avoid the crumble.
