Description:

This climb is 10 ft right of "Infinite Pursuit" and starts at the same place as "Sunday Gardening but ends at the same place as "Infinite Pursuit." The route departs "Sunday Gardening" at the first ledge where you do a delicate travers to the middle of the bright orange smooth looking face to climb a thine crack up 20 ft to a large ledge below the large overhang system. You can climb up to the 2nd roof through a slot that penatrates the 1st overhang and do a traverse just under the second roof to the left. If you travers left far enough you will find easier climbing through a weekness through the 2nd roof to access the top. To avoid rope drag you can pull the roof and move left to the weekness. If you pull it right at the slot through the 1st overhang you can up the grade to 5.11a.

4 out of 5 stars Good hard climbing

The thin middle section is super fun. Went right, over the roof on the "11a" variation. Didn't think it was more than 10b/c. I guess I wasn't leading!!

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

I bailed the first attempt of the orange face thin crack but latter climbing it and found that it would take gear, allbeit in only one place but that is all you need at that point. The roof system is scarry but there are plenty of juggy holds down low and the farther left you go the thinner the overhang becomes. Fun climb once you learn the sequance of the route. Nice variation too, with; dihedrals, slabs, roof and route finding on a traverse. I give it three stars.
