This is a superb climb on fantastic rock. With modern protection, it would be 4 stars for sure.

Begin up a beautiful, silver/white face behind the small tree, making long reaches between excellent pockets. A long clip to a high 2nd bolt relieves the nerves a bit. A big reach over the roof begins what feels like a never ending journey to figure out the best holds and sequences on brilliant black rock, sometimes well above bolts, on this bafflingly pumpy slab.

Rejoice when you clip the chains on this completely forgotten classic. This is a great route!


This route is on the right most panel at Peg Leg Wall, about 25 feet left of where the trail meets the wall. It starts behind a small tree on silver/white rock.


4 well-spaced, old (but thick) bolts with spooky, thin, black hangers. The 2nd bolt is pretty high.
