This is a less-than-vertical dihedral with a gear-eating crack. Belay from the rockseat under the tree. Scramble up 4th class to the route proper. Avoid two loose rocks -- one in the crack and one out to the right. Follow the crack to the two-ring anchor. 60-meter rope recommended.

This is in the Bowling Alley area between Mosquito Burrito and Bad Girls Get Spanked.


Standard rack. Aliens, nuts, and cams.

I recommend this as an excellent novice lead. The difficult moves for me were in the first 1/2 of the dihedral, and one could sew the crack completely. Also, with the rings on top, it's a very quick route (took us 40 minutes total car to car). Also, one can finish more nicely at the top by heading to the Mosquito Burrito Anchors.

A fun TR to set for novice climbers, or a good climb for beginning leaders. Great stemming stances and excellent nut placements made this easy to sew up.

Good feet on the left but a bit smeary on the right. Save a #1 or #2 piece for the top.

Good, fun climb at the grade. You can load this up with pro from bottom to top. Cams from fingers to BD #2 and a couple medium nuts.

This is a fun route! We climbed it as a warm up. You can "sew" the crack up with gear if you want. A #2 Camalot is the biggest piece you need.
