Stiff start, thankfully the Yuccas and dirt provide a soft landing

stiff 5.9. my partner didn't bring enough draws and had rope drag so he set up a belay under the last roof crack, so i led the rest of it. felt 10a-ish to me.

3 out of 5 stars Hurray roof!

fun and stretchy route... and if your not too snobbish to explore a little, then there are several different options for lines to the top, all about the same dificulty

Followed PhilB. With Climbrunride and Radical(S/Topo) as partner team. It's possible I have the route name wrong, and we were on another .9 nearby(not in the book nor listed on this database) so don't take my word for it when I say I felt the grade was soft by Jtree standards.

Followed. Real fun climb. Feet first at the roof crack is good advice.
