Matt on Pitch 2 of octopussy


A secluded moderate that is about as elusive as 007. The start is a bit green but it opens up to some nice movement.
P1: 5.8, 60 ft: Begin at a series of flakes 20 feet off the ground leading past a bolt at a ledge. Climb the swooping corner system, breaking left at the top for easier ground. There is a 5.8 crux here about 10 feet over the bolt. Belay at the tree on the ledge (walking left on this ledge brings you to all other routes in the area)
P2: 5.7, 130 ft: Climb past gear in a flake to the right, then to a bolt leading to a face with made to order holds. You have to wander left from here for gear and then right for more gear to the trees.


On the approach bush wack, head right before walking up to the other climbs.
