Description:

Two starts, 10a or 10b. They lead into some perfect pumpy hands. The route is only about 50' tall. This route is not on the Mojo Tooth, its is just down the road (toward the valley). There is a 25 MPH sign that is a good marker for hiking to the route, the 25 MPH is facing toward the Valley (for those who are leaving the Valley). Its a two minute hike, there is a shovel head with a star scratched into it at the base. Easy TR set up. I am sadly reporting that as of 4/6/02 the shovle is missing, if you find the culprits, smack them with it and return the shovel to is rightful place.

4 out of 5 stars fun route!

Short but sweet. Great pro' the whole way up (contrary to Supertopo, a #3 Camalot is quite beneficial for transitioning from one crack to the wider one above- glad I brought one just in case!). Led the R variation, TRd the L one- both really fun, great fingers on the L variation. Thought I was going to peel towards the top (my arms felt like they were ready to explode), but I managed to pull it together & finish without incident. Both variations are great to run laps on- leave some directionals.

Beware the abundant poison oak!
