Excellent granite with a fun mix of climbing and in a wonderful location.

Climb past two very cool Horizontal cracks (red camalot). Then move left and make thin moves up the face. A long reach or good footwork gains the left slanting flake. Step onto the flake then continue left to a hard to see bolt, pull up to a lower angle slab above the treetops. Five more bolts up the slab (5.9) lead to a three bolt anchor.

Two totally different awesome routes packed into one!


About 70 feet right of Sex on the Beach is a steep bolted wall with two horizontal cracks low on it.


10ish bolts to bolt anchor and a red Camalot.

This route, like the other to it's left but even more so, makes me feel like I can almost touch the realm of membership.

I had the honor of onsighting this today with Tom Bowker on belay. He had explained to me that a key hold at the crux had broken and it had gotten a good bit harder. I don't know what it was like before but the boulder problem crux was the hardest climbing of the day. What a fantastic route overall though. Right to the last move!
