CJ working the crux start.

This is the first route that breached the overhanging section of the cliff. Follow the trail along the wall and through the willow trees to the upper section of the wall. On the left edge of the that wall is a steep black wall leading up to some wild looking fins of rock. The route start here. Stick clip the first bolt and fire up a series of hard moves to stance below the fins.Maybe harder for shorter folks. Climb up past two bolts making some wild moves on the fin. Step left and climb/chimmey up between two fins reaching the anchor.


Six bolts will get you to a two-bolt anchor. Stick clip the first bolt.

Beta haters: stop reading now. A right heel hook is helpful for the opening moves. The rock surface on the fins is still a little grainy, but once it cleans up, this will be a very enjoyable route.

Rock is very flaky on this route and the other ones on the same, upper face. Have your belayer prepared to dodge chips/shield their eyes. Maybe with regular traffic these routes would be more fun, but as they are now, be prepared to clean loose rock on your first go.

Sweet boulder problem off the deck leading to easier climbing with very interesting rock. Minor sloughing of some rock occurred, but it seems to have cleaned up since the other comments here. Thanks to Ryan for leading this one!
