trail to and from is overgrown. handcrack to overhanging layback to offwidth undercling with bad feet. lichen covers the left side corner, inside the crack, and the feet. to a short grainy insecure chimney. at the horizontal you can go right to a triangular block to a 5.5 crack. or straight up. an anchor exists 20 feet right.

4 out of 5 stars Best natural feature at Corte Madera

This route is awesome. We tried to replace the first bolt, but it took hour to remove and unfortunately our access to the drill we were planning on using ended by then. We'll go back and put a new bolt in there. The 2nd bolt is unneccesary with current large cams. Bring a rack that is heavy on the wide. I enjoy offwidth, but it was so much easier to lieback this pitch for 110' that I just did that...
