Description:

Route is 10 to 15 feet to the right of Slip Stream almost to the end of the Sunset North Climbing area. Climb up past two small ledges to a balancy face move with little pro and move arching over to a divit in the roof. Traverse right to a very small ledge below the divit for a stance. Pull the roof reaching high for a bomber jug hold and then 8 more feet to a large ledge. Climb straight up (runout) to another week point in a roof with great juggy holds to pull the roof and easy climbing to a slanted large ledge. Anchors are up by a Tree. Crux is the face to roof transition. RAted 5.9+ in Chrises 2nd edition which is an old school rating. Its a solid 5.10a.

3 out of 5 stars Fun pumpy route

Really enjoyed this climb, but had to hang on it a bit as my arms were blasted.

3 out of 5 stars Glad I followed

This one seems pretty runout when the going gets tough; there may be an alternate way to protect by going slightly right on the ledge to the big obvious jug and placing a piece above that in the back of the 10 inch wide ledge. Hard to describe but when lowering form the top you will see what I mean. Might be a good idea to do the 5.6 next to it just to get the gear beta on the rappel.

4 out of 5 stars Glad I didn't lead it

Bottom part is pretty pumpy, with sparse but adequate protection. Spicy little bit above the ledge, too! I think the 5.9 rating is in line for this area.

4 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Really nice route. The face moves in the bottom third were the crux for me; balancy stuff using small pockets. But once I got to the first roof, I was on more familiar ground and didn't have any more trouble.
