Start at a steep, pocketed face just behind a tree. The climb is steep and follow discontinuous cracks up the face. Once the angle kicks back, head up and left to the fixed anchors above Spring Break.


Begin 5 feet left of Mister Masters and 5 feet right of Spring Break, just behind a tree.


Small gear up to a #2 Friend.

A retrobolt has been added at the top of this route to facilitate toproping off of the Spring Break anchor. What do you think the first ascentionists would have to say about these uneccesary bolts?

I found this route to have good movement on TR; Leading the rig would require a hefty sack of sorts and good gear fiddling.

Agreed. Pretty lame to add bolts (one on route to left, one on route to right of SB) for top-roping ease on proud trad lines.
