Description:

Many variations start over blocky and converge above the tree and continue up the obvious wide white crack . Very popular. One of the most remote feeling places even though it's right near the road, sweet bouldering in the meadow below.

Can be done in two pitches with a 70m rope. Need two ropes to rap the sport route (Mr. Tremendous) about 100' climber's right from the top; or walk off, also climber's right. Bring your big gear.

Occassional run-outs and dirty rock give this climb more of an adventure feel. Some unusual, outstanding moves mixed in with some class 4, uninspiring climbing.
