Start near the tree. Climb easy jugs for 30 feet. This section is maybe 5.7 and is vertical. The second half of this climb is a slab with incredibly thin with sketchy feet. There are three bolts within 5 feet of each other. This is the crux. Easier climbing after.


From where the trail to The School meets the rock wall, this climb is the third bolted route to the left.


10 bolts. Fixed anchors.

Aw, c'mon, it's only smearing...but I put in all those bolts so nobody would come flyin off the thing and hit that ledge...that way you can have fun with it and play with the technique!
