Description:

Climb a short left facing corner formed by blocks. A long crux traverse right gains a ledge-be careful to protect your second on this one. Continue past some corner system to a ledge with a tree. Two easier pitches wander through weaknesses past the GT ledge to the top. Not a good climb unless you are solid on 5.5 - the traverse is a little hard to protect for both the leader and the second. You can avoid the traverse if you walk up the hill and start at the corner of Bloody Bush. Climb the corner and this will put you at the end of the first pitch, start of the second.

5 out of 5 stars Followed Mitch from the Bloody Bush ledge

He lead both pitches...
This is a great route for a new leader. The only challenge can be route finding. It takes great gear, has rings/slings on trees for anchors and climbs like a ladder.

5 out of 5 stars Came in from bloody bush ledge

Skipped the traverse and had a joyful romp to the top. Easy climbing, great gear. Great for a new leader. Just tell them where to go...it can be easy to get lost.

5 out of 5 stars Even with directions leaders get lost

Did this as a warm up with Mitch. He got lost of P2. Went through a field of lichen. Oh well. THis is a great climb for a new leader. Skip the p1 traverse and you will be fine.
