Description 

It's a very dirty and interesting climb. Soloed it in hiking sneakers. Scenic and okay for what it is. Climb the quartz extrusion up to the Cedar tree. Get past the tree and move towards slab. Get onto slab's top section. Serious. Exit was thankfully, reasonable. If your not accustomed to this kind of climbing don't learn on this one. Upper protection is dependent on whether or not a block is wedged to the wall or not. Works fine as a hand, foot hold.


Location 

Under the giant Cedar tree is a outcropping of quartz conglomerate. After climb walk off right to trail or head up to left to climb quartz face to top.


Protection 

There are trees and pro on most of the climb.

"Teresa Nagle, Takuya and I created a direct start to bad sneakers. We began Senior Citizen. Then went right up to a crack in the wall above past a pine tree. Above the crack move right to finish up Bad Sneakers. It's still a bomb."
