Description 

This route is an excellent, 3 pitch, trad adventure for everybody!

P1. Climb the left-facing corner. Climb face to hand crack then squeeze through chimney. Belay on large bushy ledge, 5.8+.

P2. Pull juggy roof or climb around on easy terrain to small ledge with a bomber stopper placement. Continue up steep clean rock with crack and face moves. Move left and then right on easier terrain to small stance with bolted belay. Do not go right to the large ledge system, 5.8.

P3. Climb straight up belay using either crack to choice of finishes. The left way is better. Take wild cracks to top of buttress, 5.8+.

Enjoy!


Location 

Walk uphill towards the big tree from the right corner of the parking lot at the base of the second buttress. Huge, left-facing corner chimney marks the start. Descend by scrambling over top of buttress and hiking down the back side.


Protection 

Standard trad rack to a #4 Camalot.

This route can be climbed in merely two pitches. The first two pitches can lead in one long pitch with a 60M rope. The route meanders a bit, so make sure to extend all your slings. It takes nuts really well, so bring a full run.

How would people feel about adding rap anchors at the top of the left version of Chuck E. Cheese? I've climbed this excellent route many times, and there is a very obvious place at the end of the real climbing that would make good sense. The rap is from there to the top of pitch two, to the anchors on Back for Seconds (the steep crack route just to the right of C.E.C.).

Thoughts?

I think some rap anchors up there would be a great idea. Although the walk off is pretty easy, it seems to make sense as there are anchors on the second pitch. I looked at a place on the face right above where the boulder with the rope is that could work as a rap/belay for both the left and right variations. Let me know if you want to throw some anchors in up there and I'll go with you.
