Description:

Classic lumpy slab climbing with a little crack thrown in. The alcove that the first pitch starts in is uphill to the right of the obvious roof capped Orange Julius corner. The first pitch climbs the left crack to the roof and mounts the slab above (crux - 10a). The second pitch runs it out 25 feet to the first bolt and continues past six bolts before merging to the left with easy cracks to the summit (5.9).

One of my favorite climbs. I absolutely loved the second pitch. Some of the coolest featured rock i have climbed on.

Partner lead the 1st & 3rd pitches while I lead the 2nd pitch. Loved this one! Climbed it cleanly after doing J-Crack, even though I thought I'd be too tired to do it at all. Awesome first 2 pitches.
