Looking up Blue Bayou from the pine tree. The tree...

Description 

The left most route on this face, about 30 feet left of Blues Brothers. Start by the pine tree and go straight up the highly featured and large cam eating corner (I used 2 #1, a #2, & a #3) Not bad for a 5.4 a good route use if you are not comfortable with the sparse protection on Blues Brothers and would rather top rope it


Location 

Far left on the Hill Street Blues Right Formation. The webbing rap anchors are looking pretty sketchy (as of 1-3-09)so it would be a wise idea to bring new slings as there isn't much in the way of natural protection at the top.


Protection 

Large up to 3" although you can get small gear in frequently. There is a decent crack system at the top however the most popular anchor seems to be the shrub oak at the top.

Good clean crack/corner climbing on fine grained rock. A rarity for something of this rating, one of the better routes of it's grade in Josh.

Tahquitz-style exfoliation corner gone JTree. One of the best 5.4's I've done in the park. Short but sweet.
