Description:

Starts between Central Pillar of Laurel and Canyons of Laurel, toward the right end of the cliff. Claw your way through underbrush below pine trees and onto a slabby face, then up and right to a belay. Continue up a water groove for two more pitches, then out to the right and up four more pitches (seven total). Rap down the way you came.

5 out of 5 stars very nice route

expect a couple of 5.9 sections on pitches 2 and 6, both with good protection nearby. Also expect that there is pretty run-out 5.8 and below (I think I ended up with some 50+ ft run-outs, but I also took a small rack).

How can you rate this route "G" when there are only 3 bolts on pitch 3, which is at least 150 feet long? Great route nonetheless.

4 out of 5 stars Fun Moderate

Good climb with good amount of protection. A few runout areas, but not bad. Cool technical climbing.
