  • Description 

    A cool route with an airy, ascending traverse in the middle. Expect a variety of climbing techniques. Lots of great holds and good feet. The crux is an awkward, wide section just off the deck. Can be broken into two pitches but also climbs fine as one with a 60 meter rope. Use slings to manage rope drag.


    Location 

    Just right of the Shark Fin Gully. Start beneath a medium sized, brushy oak and head toward an off-width crack with a chock-stone in it about 18' up.


    Protection 

    All traditional. Gear can be somewhat tricky and is runout in spots, particularly the 2nd pitch. Small to large cams and stoppers. Placements range from good to funky or marginal. #4 Camalot useful for crux. It also looks possible to sling the chock-stone.
