Description 

This route is nothing special in and of itself. However, I have included it because it is the safest way to access the anchor for the routes on Choss Boss Crag.

The route starts up a couple moderate moves and then becomes incredibly easy for the rest of the way.

Location 

Rough coords: 34.31806N / 117.84907W

Hike up to the Ace Dick wall, then head south a bit. Stay under the crags. After a couple hundred feet, you should be able to view the Choss Boss Crag (which this route is on) ahead and on the right.

To descend back to the lake, walk downhill to the large tree, pass under it south, and then descend the long scree gully. This is faster and more fun than the scree gully used to access the other routes.

Protection 

Slung trees are the name of the game for pro. Bring long runners for the three trees on the way up, and then some nuts or small cams and a long cord or webbing for the anchor in a solid stance at the left edge of the rock at the top. You can't miss it.
