A reasonably good, long route. The line is probably not too important - just about anywhere you climb in between here and "Straight, No Chaser" is about 5.10.


The farthest climb to climber's left at the crag. Park your stuff under some pines with a crazy aggressive squirrel nearby (best to hang your things from a branch). Don't feed the squirrel, he's had enough.
Starts on a gravelly little hill through not so great rock, and hits a thin crack and a dying cedar. Farris says that it's got a bolt up high on the route, but I never saw it.


TR, trad?

My brother Mike led this in the late 80's. Interesting route. I remember thin crack at the crux.
