Fun 5.9 face climb up to chains on the tree. A pretty simple start leads to a crux gaining the base of a crack leading to the tree.

3 out of 5 stars Rubicon

Climbed with Shaun. Fun climb, though a little short. 5.11 Finger crack around to the left is so sick. I am totally going to project that line.

4 out of 5 stars Good climb

Went up on one of the first nice days of the spring and had the place all to ourselves. There are a lot of ways to ascend, and there's a more difficult bolted variation that goes under the overhang to the left. Lots of crimps and small toe pockets, with the crux coming on a difficult side-pull up to the flake. It's a bit run-out leading up to the anchor, but this section is probably a 5.6-5.7. Good rock, good bolts, good moves, beautiful scenery... and you can cool down on the any of the many surrounding boulders.
