A bouldery start leads up past the first bolt and onto the nice ledge at 15 feet. Style your way up the face to the right of "Ticks" until you are below the lower roof that Ticks dodges. But you ain't no roof dodger!
Clip the bolt on the underside of the roof, and show those kids how it's done. Continue up the steeper face above to big pockets and anchors.
Starts about 15 feet to the right of the start for Paraphernalia and Ticks Are For Kids, below a bolt on the face below the ledge.
7 bolts, anchors

Some locals there called this route the Beach Ball for the roundish bouldery protrusion at the start. Pulling the move just above the first bolt is the crux. They said it was an 5.11c but after the crux move I'd call it a high 10 or 11a.

This route is not the one locals call Beach Ball--that is Ivy League. It's the one with the roundish bouldery protrusion. And it is easier than this one, Poison Ivy.

In Kelly Brown's guide this route is listed as "Ivy League" 11b..which I think explains the beach ball confusion. Ivy League, in his guide is listed as Poison Ivy 11a.
