BETA PHOTO: Forbidden Fruit and Magic Mushroom in the Taboo ar...
A classic for the area. Stem your way up the left-facing dihedral. Tricky moves lead to a rest before the steep face above. Fire through awesome steep moves to a gold-corner. Super fun liebacking leads to a rest before the final bulge to the anchors. 150 feet. Like many of the longer routes at the quarry you must lower to a midway anchor, pull your rope and then lower to the ground from the midway station.
Route starts in the left-facing dihedral just left of Magic Mushroom. L-P-L to get down (lower to miday anchor, pull rope, then lower to ground.
18+ bolts to 2 shuts

Climbing to the first set of anchors on this route is a fun 5.11a outing.

Fun climb but odd bolt placements. Many bolts are placed just out of reach from a good stance. It seems this pitch would be considerably easier with draws pre-hung. Great climbing none the less.

The dihedral portion at the bottom of this climb is stellar.

The dihedral portion at the top of this climb is even more stellar! But, it can get a bit dirty and grainy after rain or without much action.
