A great warm up. Sort of contrived start but the route moves up through positive holds and is quite fun to do.


Goes up the left side of the "boulder" with a very overhung face that nearly leans against a large pine tree. 3rd formation on the left while hiking up the draw.


5 bolts to open hooks. Lower off over the overhang.

Not sure what's contrived about it? Good route with a tricky to decipher crux getting to the second bolt.
