Description:

This route is 50 yds left of the Shortcake Wall routes. It starts on a crazy tufa formation, to a high first bolt (20'), but very easy climbing to that bolt. Left of the first bolt is a huge cave, with a dead tree sticking out of it. The tree is about 18" in diameter, and 10' long - sticking out at a 30 degree angle. Climb the face of the tufa-thing directly to the first bolt. The move to the next bolt is 100% mental - it's totally an intimidation move, but not difficult at all. Last bolt and top out are where the 5.9 moves are - good side pulls and foot placements make it much easier.

3 out of 5 stars Very High first bolt

The first bolt is so high you can't even stick clip it. However, the climbing up to that point is pretty easy. The route is a little dirty because not a lot of people get it on it. I thought it was a fun route. Going past number two presented a bit of commitment because you have to go from a great ledge you are standing on out onto the face.

This is a borderline onsite, since I belayed, but couldn't see the beta for the hard parts of the route.
