Sumac, 5.9, on the Poison Ivy Wall.


Climb a left-facing dihedral via jams and using big holds, flakes, etc.


This is located on the Poison Ivy Wall, just right of the Silver Doors. The other Poison Ivy Wall routes start from the trail along the wall. This route begins on the road. This climb is left and around the arete of the Kor Line (Garden Salad), which is listed as Poison Ivy in the Western Sloper guidebook.


Nuts and a set of cams to #3 Camalot. Two bolt anchor at the top.

Despite what the new guidebook says, this route does not share an anchor with the climb to the right. It has its own.

The middle flake seemed to groan a little, I trusted it to climb on but hesitated top put a cam behind it in case of a fall, although lieback moves would get you through. It's probably a better idea to stem, and face climb....
