5 out of 5 stars Cave Route

Harold and I pulled out what little poison oak was on the route on the way up and placed a new set of rappel anchors on top. It is a full 100 ft rappel from the top. I'd forgotten how fun this route was to lead. Saw two skinks on the way up.

5 out of 5 stars new belay

We've placed a set of belay anchors on the first ledge above the madrone (bush). Its only about 25 to 30 feet up, but will clear the belayer from the bush.

5 out of 5 stars Cave

Well protected route up a narrow 100 ft spire with great exposure. Cleaned a lower cave and some PO from the crack on the way up, kicked most the dirt off when rappelling off but about 10 feet of the lower easier bit (5.5) of climbing could use some rain or brushing if that makes your day. Route is now clear of PO.
