David Carrier climbing Sweet Pea


Start at the middle of the rocky bulge, midway between Cliff Monster and Crown of Thorns. Go straight for the top from here, using small ledges and jugs. Don't be tempted to exit left or right on the big diagonal ledges, you'll miss out on all the fun stuff in between. There are good holds right where you need them all the way up. Exit up and right on the final diagonal ledge near the top, and use the blocky arete to get up and over the final crux.


Top and bottom of the route is about 10-15 feet to climber's left of Crown of Thorns.


Sling the large boulder on top with a long static line, and drop the line over the edge of the ledge below in order to avoid rope drag. You can also use a gear anchor in the nice crack in the wall above the big ledge.
