Climbing on broken face.
Lower Pond Area
#86 on Marty Karabin's "Road Area" (9/2008) pocket guide

We ran up this one March 13th, hoping to avoid the scramble to the upper pond and get in an extra climb at the same time. Extremely stiff for a 5.9 and has likely lost many solid holds over time. If you must climb this route, be sure you feel comfortable leading in the 10b-11a range. The crux is somewhere around the fourth bolt where hands and feet are very limited. Some chauce, peeled off a small flake but took no falls. The chains are too low to safely scramble out. At the route's anchors, clip in and set up a top belay station for your partner and have them lead 10-15 feet over a decent nose and slab to the rappel chains (exactly like a 2 pitch sport climb). There you can safely scramble/walk to the upper pond routes.
