BETA PHOTO: Maggot. The fourth bolt is about half way to the ...

Description 

Start on a consistently overhung wall and follow the four bolts as they angle up and left. Some tricky moves that we didn't get the first time. After the fourth bolt, we angled slightly right over the bulge to easier climbing and then continued straight up. A hand crack provided a place for great pro, and the anchors weren't too much further. One of the anchor bolts can be seen silhouetted against the sky if standing in just the right place near the belay stance.

Location 

At the last picnic table, scramble alongside the stream and continue hiking up along the stream, switching sides several times. Higher up someone put in steps. The climb is behind a large pine tree and the belayer can see a waterfall about a 100 feet further up the stream. Rap off two bolt anchor.

Protection 

Four bolts, then some medium sized trad, then two bolts for anchors.
