This short and powerful route is located left of the approach trail on a small pinnacle of rock behind the bed and breakfast. Sequential mono and two finger pocket pulling leads up a sharp arete to an easier finish. Quality climbing the whole way, but unfortunately much too short.
Moves: Thin arete
Descent: Two bolt anchor
Stays Dry:
Owner: Muir Valley

Great route with interesting pocket pulling. Rewarding movement. Reminescent of Nicoderm.
