The crux of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.


This mixed route climbs flakes and a dihedral on excellent rock. This route receives a great deal of shade due to the large pine trees that grace the cliff base.

Begin 10 feet right of Touch Monkey. Scramble up to a left trending finger crack that turns into a slopy-edged flake. Mount the flake, where more liebacking leads to the lone bolt. The crux involves a short dash on thin pockets to the next crack. Follow the shallow dihedral crack to the anchor. The bulk of this route is pretty trivial, but the crux is fairly hard for the 5.10+ grade that was originally given to this route.


10 feet right of Touch Monkey. The lone bolt is ~2/3 the way up the wall.


1 bolt, several finger-sized pieces, 2x #3/4, #1, #2 cams. 2 Open-cold-shuts for the anchor. Easy to toprope.
