Climb the right leaning crack on amazing and fun jams to crack's end. Start as low as possible down there. When the crack ends face climb straight up (crux) to a bolt around the corner. Two options exist from here, climb the left face up to the top or continue up the right face and cracks to a shallow tip layback corner and a thin face moves. Lot's of great climbing! Pine tree anchor. I didn't see a bolt anchor.


"on the steep and impressive buttress between SHAKE AND BAKE and CIRCUS." Right of "IRON LUNG"


cams, nuts, a bolt, tree anchor

I almost forgot this one.. great route to flop on. A real onsight ascent would be very impressive.

Is that the 'belfry' beneath it? I think I remember walking over there. I also remember a cool mixed stemming corner and I never could find the raptor roof, which sounds cool.
