|Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>|
Bouldery start leads to easier climbing working up and right through huge huecos to an intimidating looking bulge. Hidden jugs over the top lead to edgy climbing to the left, ending up on a tufa and sharp edges next to a hanging palm tree.
Easily identified by the hanging palm at its top. This route is 3 lines to the left of the Lion King.
2 bolts, 4 slings/threads.

So I found the need to to a campus move to start the route (I'm 5ft 5in) to some polished holds brings it up to solid V1+/V2/10B territory for the first move, then 5.9/5.8 afterwards. My wife doesn't have the upper body strength to make the pull and she's 5ft 2in and needed a boost for the first move. I let a 20 yr old swedish kid who's about 6ft 2in top roping the route and he had problem w/the first move.
Afterwards it's a very nice climb! Nice blind search for a hand hold above an overhang to a somewhat technical traverse finish with big but polished holds.
