Will on Diagonal

Description 

Locate a bolt just above small triangular roof at the base of the cliff. Pass the bolt on moderate 10- to thin cracks up to the main diagonal crack. Follow the crack switching to the higher crack mid route. The climbing here is sustained with a show stopper bouldery crux just below the last bolt.


Location 

the second to last route on the farthest right wall of the main cliff at stonehouse - look for a bolt just above a small triangular roof on the right side of the cliff.


Protection 

rack from green alien to #4 BD, one bolt on the bottom, one at the top.

I don't know if it was the FFA, but Karin Bates & I cleaned out the vegetation in the crack in 1992 and added the bolts after putting up Luna and Sicilian. Called it Flying Squirrel then after the critter that leaped out of the crack and glided into the trees on our first lead. I think it's probably 50' max as it starts uphill from Sicilian and Luna.

You can substitute extras in those sizes although this should probably suffice.

Will and I climbed it today. Better than I had remembered and a good warm-up for the harder routes at the pond. Seems a little easier than say Lichen Delight on the Barber Wall. 10d/11a imo.
