4 out of 5 stars less hot and buggy

With Sarah B. We were going to climb on Easy Street, but between the intense heat, direct sun, not enough water, and forgetting the bug dope, we decided to count it as a recon day and retire. Which is when Ben and Pam came along. They had put up the Tea area, and invited us to share their rope (and gave us bug dope). So we followed them. This one was great fun, slightly crumbly but not terribly insecure. I couldn't figure out the crux move and went around. Seemed like it was at the grade down low, and eased up once you pass the odd crux. There is 4th class ascent from the Easy Street area to this one.

4 out of 5 stars Steep and Stout

"Irish Car Bomb" is steep and climbs up an awesome gently overhung wall on the variety of excellent pockets and features. Well worth the hike out to the Tea Room. Several other excellent moderates above and away from crowds.
