Description 

The climb begins pretty fair and square but then changes to rock between the grasses. Maybe the conversion to this new environment is the crux. The moves are on clean sharp rock. was really big fun and ridiculous looking because so much rock to climb hidden by the grasses. Way committing going on up. Much more rock climbing than I thought I would do. All of the trees are dead on this wall and some were in the way. There gone now. I went without climbing shoes on.
Now, clean rock with many little trees and long ferns in the dike make this it best climb too do in the late fall or very early spring.


Location 

To the left of the 'Dirtiest Climb' first pitch is the start to this climb. After it higher up is the Orange Crush traverse trail that junctions with the Jimmy Cliff trail.


Protection 

Not much, maybe some cams pockets otherwise none I looked at because I was kept preoccupied.
