BETA PHOTO: Strainer (5.10b), Thurman Flat


The easiest, by far, route here. The climbing starts easy enough up the obvious corner at the left side of the East Face.

After a couple of ledges the climb gets surprisingly steep. Using an obvious undercling it is possible to gain a large hold. Make a couple more moves up to the anchors.


Leftmost route on the East Face.


4 bolts, 2 ring anchors

Not on par with the other routes here, but this still contains some fun moves.

poison oak is still at mid point. a wasp nest sits to the right of 4th bolt, dont make eye contact and they wont bother you.
