BETA PHOTO: Plan B 5.9, 100 ft, 2 pitch


Plan B is simply the easiest line of least resistance that allowed me to climb up to the mid-cliff dihedral, then continue climbing upward to the top of the rock face, on the most enjoyable path.
The first and more difficult line conceived, involves climbing up the line of bolts, directly below the dihedral. This route is called 'Oshit Approved.' It was originally a 12a/b slab that lost one of the essential, small holds during an ascent by Jon Batson. Needless to say, it became a bit harder, so I looked for a plan B option to utilize the rest of a fun route.
Plan B moves up and left, over the first bulge, across the slab towards the dihedral. Move up using the pocket and clip to rap anchor on your right. Rap 50 feet from here or continue climbing up a grass ledge to gain access to the upper face. Several bolts well protect easy climbing, another 40 feet to the top of the bluff.


30 feet to the right of Skunk Compass, start using a shared first bolt, then head up and left and over the bulge toward the obvious pocket dihedral.
