The leftmost route on the Cornerstone. The first bolt is just below and right of the shrub atop a short right-facing crack. The climb can be 5.9 by moving left by the 3rd and 4th bolts (you can still clip them if you're leading).


5 bolts, 2 ring-anchors. Set TR by scrambling up around left side of Cornerstone.

And as a bonus, you get to climb basically through a rather large bush! Actually not a bad climb, but short like the rest of the routes here. You may wish to protect your first move off the ground with a larger cam if you don't feel comfortable with the looks of the start.

An OK route, I went with a taller friend and he found it more enjoyable than me, so maybe a bit better if you have a long reach. The bush is really awkward, as you have to climb through it.
