  • Description 

    This is a line which gets very little attention, but perhaps still more thn it deserves. The route is accessed through a poor trail, walking through low scrubby bushes past a wasp's nest and then only reaches scruffy low angle climbing in a dirty gully.

    Climb up to the top of the rock on said gully and then onward to the summit of the amphitheater, or improvise a scramble down to the North.

    Location 

    To reach this route wander out of the amphitheatre and out to the East side, heading up the hill North past the steep and tall, outside East Face route. Continue to a bush-choked gully that leans to the right as is ascends to the right of the summit of the East Bench. A short Flatiron of rock lies in front of the right side of this.

    Fight through the bushes past a large colony of wasps on your right side in the crack to a start just left (south) of the leaning gully's base.

    Climb up and slightly right to the right shoulder of the summit in a notch, from which you can see the North face of the outside of the formation, then up and left to the summit on the East Face of the rock. The climbing might be 5.4 for 1 move, but it is predominantly easier.

    Protection 

    A standard light rack or solo.
