BETA PHOTO: Big Kahunas is the far left route in this photo.


This climb is accurately named, because you need some big kahunas to pull the slopey overhung runout crux between the 3rd and 4th bolt.... Probably not harder than a 5.9 move, but much scarier than most....


This is the last climb in this crag. Follow the trail about 200ft west of the over hung wall, it is the bolted line up over a few bulges just left (west) of the two slab climbs.


4 bolts, 2-bolt anchor.

A nice line of steep cobble climbing, made dangerous by poorly positioned bolts. There are multiple places on this route where one would could be seriously injured in a fall. Between the 3rd and 4th bolt as well as 4th and 5th bolts....
