You are on your own on this one. The first 40 feet is all overhanging, the first bolt is a good 20 feet of 5.12 up. After the overhanging section are two overhangs that must be mantled, then steep slab climbing to the top. This is a project route, the rating is only what has been encountered so far. Post up with a pic if you get this one.


This route is located by the first pullout in the East Creek area. The route is to the west of the largest tree in the parking area. Look for the painted bolts, the first one is way up there.


There are 5 bolts and a two bolt anchor at the top. All bolts are new 5" long stainless.

Anybody know who bolted the line?
And is this line actually worth projecting - my meaning being whether or not it's a choss pile or not?
It would be nice to have a good .13 20 minutes from GJ to play around on.

and how high off the deck is it before you get to the first bolt?
