Tia Stark leading Rubicon from the (in?)direct start - Miramontes Photography. This start was .11 R, and had some great bouldery moves on coarse but good rock. I'd go 3 out of 5 stars for this high-quality headpoint start, and 5 for the entire route.

cool! I didn't think those slashes would take gear.

Tia started off of one crashpad (no tree). Her first piece was marginal, but her second piece (med. nut) was good. From there, sustained .11- moves continued until about groundfall (22ft), then finally good holds. Belayer might have had to dive into the bushes to take up extra slack, to avoid groundfall. My opinion is that this is the best start of the three. Bolts would make it a trade-route start, improving the overall route compared to the long traverse - but they would also detract from the quality of this fine headpoint start.
