Top rope ban in effect; DO NOT SLING THE CEDARS.


Immediately to the left of Camel is a shallow, left facing flake (quite solid) whose crack gradually enlarges as it moves up the face. Ascend this flake system to a bulge (crack will continue up and right), which is to the left. Pull the bulge, which has no natural protection, but has a bolt. Atop the bulge a crack emerges and ascends up a shallow, right facing corner. This crack eats pro. Climb this to a resting stance. Gain the ledge to the wrap station. Note: someone denigrated this route by bolting it in its entirety. The route is truly a mixed route, with the only required bolt being the one at the bulge.


Mixed. Please be an honorable climber: use pro.
