Super easy route found on the first face to the right as you walk in. Big ol' chemical pockets, jug pulls, giant holds everywhere. Solid warmup route.


The middle of the first face as you enter the hollow. Climb to the left of the big pine tree growing on a ledge (by big pine tree, I mean the only one that grows in the middle of the rock and reaches the top of the face).


Toprope setup, you may be able to lead, but the rock was breaking as I climbed, I personally wouldn't trust it.

Leadable, just place your pro deep.

I set a toprope on this choss pile spring of 2000 for my girlfriend at the time. She popped a hold just off the ground. I would avoid this even if bone dry.
