  • Description 

    Single Pitch of good tricky 5.10+/11- face climbing. Reach this pitch by climbing the first of "Cruise Line". Rap off or continue up the second pitch of the mixed route "Tail Tucker" (gear needed).

    Note: Can be lead as one mega pitch with 20 quick draws and a 60 meter rope. Then just rap or lower twice to the ground.

    Pitch 1(5.9): Climb the first pitch of "Cruise Line" but continue about 20 feet above the anchor to a 3-bolt station that is the shared start for "Baby Face", "Blood Line" and "Offspring"

    Pitch 2 (11a): This is the "Offspring" pitch. From the belay climb left and up into the blank looking face in the middle of the large recess formed by the dihedral of "Tail Tucker" on the left side and the route "Baby Face" on the right side. Follow bolts through tricky face climbing on really good white polished stone leading up and slightly right to the base of a right facing corner that is to the right of the main corner of "Tail Tucker". From here tricky climbing leads up the corner to a small ledge with a 2-bolt anchor with rap rings. Just below you are a set of anchors without rap rings which are meant for the climb "Tail Tucker:. At this point you are 3/4 of the way up the large Tail Tucker dihedral.

    Location 

    Begins from Lunch Rock by climbing the first pitch of "Cruise Line". Rap or continue to the top by climbing "Tail Tucker" (gear required).

    Protection 

    12-14 quickdraws. Bolted anchors.

    Climbed this as a second warm-up on 2/1/14. Combined the first pitch of Cruise Line with Offspring into one mega pitch. This thing is really great climbing and easily as good as the classic middle pitch of Baby Face. It has a little bit of everything with technical slab, pumpy laybacking, and stemming. Highly recommended, and good fun.
