BETA PHOTO: Finding the undercling.

Description 

Interesting and progressively diffcult climbing up overhanging rock transitions into a long section of fabulous slab climbing (5.7) to anchors just below the large hanging garden.

Named for the active allergen in poison oak which was quite heavy at the base of the route and even partway up the rock face.

Location 

20' right of Super Soul Slab.

Protection 

6 bolts, ring anchors

The third/fourth bolt crux seems harder than any of the moves on The Expedition just to the left. Certainly a much shorter climb as it eases up right after the 4th bolt. Had to hand tighten the 3rd bolt as it was loose. Otherwise it looked great.

Just remember - 5.10d is harder than 5.11a!

definitely something i'll need to keep in mind, as I struggled more on the opening moves of Three Kings than I did on this or The Expedition.
