Just thought others might want want to take on this interesting line. I can't work on it any more. This is a mostly unprepped project on the far left side of the Coethedral formation. It looks like Lake Tahoe's Candyland in some sections; smooth rock with grapefruit sized rocks jutting out. It has been cleaned a little but needs work. The yellow lichen present on this climb may produce asthma like symptoms in people who are generally not prone to asthma. Consider wearing a dust mask while cleaning.

If following the path shown in the picture, the grade will probably end up being between a 5.11b and 5.11d.


To get to the anchor, bail from the middle of the second pitch of Bewitched. This will allow you to rappel onto the project's anchor. A safer option would be to climb with two ropes to the top of the second pitch of Bewitched and double-rope rappel (over 100') down to the project's anchor.


I installed a carabiner anchor on this climb. It will probably need between 8 to 10 lead bolts.
