    Look for an old bolt about 40 feet off the deck. Climb to the bolt, then climb on the outside of a thin flake that makes weird sounds as you the top of this...clip another old bolt and then make a few steeper moves to a belay.


    A slab climb located about 50 yards north of the pear and apple.


    two old bolts...some small cams and stoppers for belay.

    Bolts were replaced Dec 06, and the climb has a bolted anchor with rap chains 80 Ft off the deck. The belay chains can also be accessed by a 3rd and 4th class ramp that starts about 40 yards to the left (north) of the climb if one wishes to toprope the climb.
