This route climbs straight up from the arete just left of Barley and Hops and continues up the face above. After a bouldery start, the grade eases to 5.7ish climbing with just enough pro every now and again. The lack of information, lichen covered holds, and sporadic pro made this feel a little more adventurous than the grade would suggest.

Note: I'm not sure if this route already exists under a different name somewhere, but I couldn't easily find anything on it. Please comment below or contact me if you have any information about this line.


This is a few feet before the property line fence where Hickadelic Jazzgrass goes up. It starts on the rounded arete just left of Barley and Hops and goes straight up from there (see picture). B & H presumably traverses left and joins this line above the dihedral roof.


Finger to hand sized cams and a set of stoppers. The gear isn't great, but it's there. The route finishes left of the anchors for 420 - step right and clip them. Some cordelette will allow you to redirect the anchor over the ledge so it's better positioned for a top-rope or to rap.
