Friction up and over an early overlap, continue up the slab towards the cedar tree and pull across a flake edge to a steeper patina line to the anchors under an overhanging dihedral. Above this is the 2nd pitch of Tiers of Joy. It was discovered after the fact that Ryobi loosely followed some sections of the somewhat runout original Tiers of Joy first pitch. Brad Shilling (FA of Tiers of Joy and climbing ranger at the time) was notified immediately of the potential retrobolting and he gave his blessing to the new line. It can now be used as an approach pitch to the excellent 2nd pitch of Tiers of Joy (5.10 full on trad).


Fun slab left of "Poking Holes in the Firmament". Climbs a well bolted line right of an obvious small tree about 1/3 the way up. One 60 meter rope to rappel to the ground.


8 or 9 quickdraws
