4 out of 5 stars Not the Cleanest Route

Lead the route in a single pitch while still mostly in the shade. The route starts between WOSL and Captain Crunch. There are no bolts but there is a very obvious crack leading up to the left with grass and small trees growing out of it. The crack is very dirty and does not provide the holds that would be expected of a crack its size. There is also a tree limb growing across the lower section of the route, which I slung for protection before climbing over it. I was able to place a few cams in the crack for protection and slung a few more small pine trees further up. I mostly slab climbed beside the crack rather than using the crack for holds. The upper section of the route is covered in trees and bushes and I am not really sure where the original line would have ended. I had two choices, go left and end at the Rice Crispies belay, or go right just below the bushes to an opening beside a large pine tree. The right looked more like the proper line. It was a bit runout from the last protection and the climbing was a little difficult due to the large amounts of debris on the rock but it was still fun. I had to climb up over the roots of the pine tree to reach the tree ledge. There was a nice tree to sit on and use for a belay just above the end of the rock. The route is a little difficult and needs to be cleaned up. I wouldn't recommend it unless you are just trying to complete every route at Stone.
