This route is the thin seam to the right and up from Fixx cliff. We happened upon this climb after doing a 5.8 on Dog wall. When we came toward the climb, about 20 Gambel's Quail flew off. The seam offers a little marginal protection down low. The real crux of this climb is trusting the rock. On the FA, we probably broke 10 holds- I took a ground fall after breaking 3 holds 5 feet up. There is about 20 feet of near vertical 5.7 climbing followed by 60 feet of 4th class/ 5.0 climbing.
Above Dog wall, right of Fixx cliff. This is the thin seam 15' left of a large crack
Small cams and nuts to 1/2 inch. Optional #2 BD cam for belay
