With more traffic this pitch will clean up nicely. Scramble up to a brushy ledge and step left then slab up to the left side of a low roof. From this point don't pass up any gear you may find. Pull the roof and climb the steeper face/seam following the obvious weakness to a ledge. Step right and work up a slight bulging face to an evergreen. Avoid the poision ivy jungle above by rapping from here. 100ft


Sorry this route is not shown on topo or photograph. Starts 40ft left of First base. The Juniper tree 20ft below the top is at the end of the pitch.


Lots of tiny cams and a good run of the rest to 3 inches. Tiny stoppers may also be useful.
