Just right of the slab wall is an overhanging section of the cliff with two nice looking pocket lines. This is the first line on this wall. Clip a high first bolt to begin. Pull through long moves on deep pockets to a crimp crux just before the shuts. Watch out for the tree from the last bolt to the anchors.

Why are there pieces of green webbing tied to the first bolt of both the pocket routes?
pigsteak said on December 30th, 2008

the route is good. needs some climbing. watch out for the tree going to the anchors.

Set the grade at 5.11d.

definitely watch it going to the anchors, my friend bounced of the tree after her foot broke. More scary than painful so long as the catch is soft.

the tree potential sucks. also, the nut on the first bolt needs tightened asap....the hanger could spin off any time now.

This route is good but felt way too hard for 11d!

I think this is right on for 5.11d. There aren't any singular hard moves on it, just pumpy. The holds in general are really good and the texture is great

Good route. Nice pacing of dificulty and rests.

Good stuff. As good as anything on the Solar Collector wall without the scene.

Hard climb the way 5.11d should be :) This thing took me a few tries as I would always stop here on the way out from Darkside or Solar with like, "Let's just run up there and do a fun lap on a steep 5.11" Kapow! No send. Had to go back fresh... have a friend hang the draws if possible ;)

5.not11. Definitely belongs with the hipster 5.12 crowd. Grade debates aside, this line is very good. Get on it.

Great, great line. Super solid rock, awesome moves, fun all the way. The tree is a bit close, but I guess that's just extra motivation not to blow the anchors.

Sustained rock climb. The holds feel better than they appear from the ground. I pitched at the top (crux) and hit the tree pretty hard. It was more startling than painful, but be careful up there.
