  • Description 

    Start climbing a little left until you reach the small crack about 20 feet up, which is the crux. Follow the crack to the right until you come out on top of a small bush. Keep climbing right of the bush until the rock starts to get really shaky- then head over to the arete on your left. You can cheat and use the left side, or make it more challenging and stay more on the right.

    The rock sucks here. However, there is a line of fairly solid rock if you follow it the right way.


    Climb up the southwest corner of this ridge and scale across to get to the two trees that are the TR anchors. Your rope will drop down into two big annoying bushes, start of the climb is at a little 5 foot ledge right between the two. Getting down is where this route got its name, cause if you're not careful on the rap you'll get an ass full of bush.


    Some long slings/cord for the anchor.
