Fun 5.8 flake climbing to a bolt-protected crux face move. (The face move is easily aided by stepping in a sling and reaching the horn on the roof above.) Then go over a small roof and enjoy the 5.5 crack climbing to a ledge with a two 1/2" bolt anchor.


On a lower-angle bluff up and right of Plum Pudding and Folsom Blues.


Small nuts to a fist-sized cam.

Jon, I have looked for this, how far over from Folsom is it?

Hi Geoff,

I'm guessing about 100 feet or less, and a little uphill.

I TRed another route just right of The Lawn Rake that follows some face holds leading to a seam in a left-facing shallow corner. Thin 5.10-5.11 moves. It needed some more cleaning at the top though. Next time I visit, I'll see about finishing it off.

This route is now cleaned up and ready to go. Walk 30 seconds to the right of Folsom Blues along the base of the cliff on a little trail. More route development is happening in the area, I'll post that soon.
