Description:

The route starts about 15' to the right of Name Unknown just under the left edge of a ledge about 10' off of the ground. Steep rock leads to a nice flake on the end of the ledge. Climb straight up through increasingly steeper rock with less holds than the previous lines, eventually connecting to Name Unknown. Follow Name Unknown to the top or belay from the fixed pin.

Descent Options:

Use trail on left to walk off.

4 out of 5 stars Just Showing Another Climbing Partner the Routes

The first time I climbed this route it took me a moment to find the moves to get off the ground, however, this time around it seemed quite easy. The crux is just above the first ledge and I was only able use two very small cams for protection. I would probably climb this route again in the future. I am probably rating the scenery too low on all of these routes due to the fact that the rock is not all that attractive, its covered in brush, and there is a road directly beneath it. However, if you stand at top of the rock and look to the right, there is a wicked view of the surrounding mountains.

4 out of 5 stars Another Fun Lead

Getting off the ground was a little tricky but not all that difficult. Once I was able to grab the flake, it made access to the ledge much easier. I used some smaller micro cams for protection when climbing up off of the ledge. The climbing was steep but never desperate. I used the fixed pin on Name Unknown as my belay. I decided to rap back down using a tree rather than walking off. As I was coming back down past the flake near the bottom, I noticed something under the flake. Upon closer examination, I discovered there was a bat hiding in the crack. I'm just glad it didn't bite me when I used the flake as a hold.
