Manny R. climbs the boulder marking the top of the...


At the tallest part of cliff a lone large boulder sits atop the second pitch. Pitch 1 starts on the right facing dihedral capped by a roof (go right); gear belay (5.8, 100'). Pitch 2 gain the small roof and make tricky moves to get above this, take the cracks straight up to another slight overhang and finish below the big boulder (5.10+, 100'). Pitch 3 wanders straight back to the wall to an obvious broken dihedral (5.9, 100'); go left 10' near top to large pine with sling.


At bottom of central gorge is a nice large flat spot to hang out. Look for the large boulder atop the second pitch to orient yourself. The first pitch is a very obvious dihedral, some lichen makes it look less than great but it's fine.


Double rack to #2, single 3,4 camalot; nuts; few slings and 10 quick draws.

First pitch has bolted anchor; second pitch has rope at base of boulder; third is a slung Pine tree.
