Description:

Bolted route on the left side of Knob Hill proper. Scramble up ~10' to a ledge under the first bolt. You can clip it from this stance. Probably a good idea because the crux is the third move. The belayer should have a solid stance nearby because this is a smearfest. 6 total bolts. A little run out at the top but the knobs are positive. You'll need most of a 50' rope on this route. The end of the route is at the tree. You can rap off of it if you have a second rope(only one 60m rope needed if you rap left into gully). Good idea. Because the second pitch, while easy, is pretty much a solo. Descend to the left down some dirty mossy class 3/4. The rating only applies as 5.8 if you stay left. Going straight over the bolt is harder. Supertopo puts it at 5.10a I think.

This route goes at 10a because a few holds broke off. Very thin crux to slick friction moves. Great climb.

Fun for the first half pitch, but then degrades into mostly boring easy slab. The crux move is a great moment of friction committment for the aspiring granite slab leader.
