Description:

F.A. Charlie Oydston, Mike Panciera (1975). This route goes up the beautiful steep looking ramp/sidewalk over the water on the left (south) end of the lichen wall. Begin near the waters edge on black rock (small corner also the start of Old #7). Face climb up and then traverse left over water to the start of the ramp. There's some pro to be had behind questionable flakes and such - keep your eyes open. Once at the ramp, climb up to the tree ledge and belay. Good pro all along the ramp. Second pitch goes up easy corner (trough) up and right and through an amazing old cedar tree. Belay and then continue on up easy rock via a wide crack or go righ to the rap anchors above Jays Gully. Edit: Pro can be a bit tricky and run out is pretty much certain ("OK Select" give it R rating).

4 out of 5 stars Henry and I

3rd climb of the day. Had a few minutes of sprinkling rain but nothing to wet the rock. Rapped down from the anchors at the top.

2 out of 5 stars Easy to place gear

Great for first trad climb but seasoned climbers will get bored with it.

4 out of 5 stars Led P1

Led P1 followed by Gardner. We didn't have a problem protecting our climb. Not sure why this has an R rating.

4 out of 5 stars Kevin P1, I P2 but missed the rap anchor by 10ft. Kevin extra P3

I don't see why it is rated with R. The pro is good. At the worst PG13.
