Description:

This route is on the left side of the creek between the Stumbling Blocks and the water pool before the final traverse into the Ghetto. To the left of a large Sycamore tree at about 7 feet off the deck is the first bolt, follow this around the bulge up to some final delicate moves to clip the chains. Nice climb for the grade and in the shade on hot days. Base will be underwater in certain parts of the year.

3 out of 5 stars 203 tough moves

Getting through the roof was tougher than expected. May be height dependent as there were a few long reaches to reach the obvious big pockets. Some critical holds as you fully establish over the roof are loose ("luggage handle" is about to blow).

4 out of 5 stars Pockets Galore

Steep pocket pulling low yields to balancy moves on crimps and shallow pockets near the top. Great, but short, shady route.

4 out of 5 stars Soft, but Good Hearted

Excellent climb, short, but fun moves. Looks like good pockets below the 1st bolt, but not as good as advertised. Steep and fun, work up and left on small holds at the top. Well protected.
