Deb on what could be (?) the first ascent of Birth...


This is a TR line that inserts itself between Burning Rubber and Smokin' Joints on entirely independent holds. It was named in honor of Dave Clark 5.10 who celebrated his 59th birthday here.

You can start in the crack or on the subtle left-facing arete on jugs. Suddenly the holds get small for a while. Gain the left end of the ledge of Smokin' Joints. The crux may be the final bit to the top.

Happy Birthday, our dear friend.


This is Burning Rubber and Smokin' Joints.


You can use the anchors of Smokin' Joints and a small cam (tiny yellow Camalot or green/blue Alien) a few feet below the top in a crack for a directional.
