Description 

An oldschool runnout testpiece which has been obscured and all but swallowed up by newer routes to it's left and right. A bold adventure for the few who seek the more mental challenges of climbing, Tapestry surely won't disappoint.

Begin by climbing up Farley a short distance until you can traverse out left heading for a big stance. Blue Velvet takes the direct approach to this stance, shares a bolt with Tapestry then quickly tucks tail and runs to the left. Clip this lone bolt for Tapestry then pull through the short .10b crux. Now wander through 5.7/8 knobs with possibly a questionable knob tie-off at best until you reach a bolt shared with Crushed Velvet. You can easily identify this bolt as it uncharacteristically jets out left of the line of bolts on Crushed Velvet about 70ft up past your last bolt. Now climb up and left through 5.7 knobs and edges heading for a small right facing corner with what seems to be at least 80ft up. Build a belay here as you'll quickly be out of rope if you don't.

If you have the skills to make it here. Surely you can come up with your own solution of finding your way off the route.

Location 

Wandering face between Blue Velvet and Crushed Velvet.

Protection 

Two bolts and confidence in ones own abilities.
