This route was auctioned off for charity. Still working to get the winning bidder out to the wall. The 1st pitch is probably 5.10a. It has a number really unique tufa like pinches.

Overheard some guys this weekend, eyeing the red tag, and debating whether they should go for it. The route winner might want to hurry up if they want an FA.

This thing open? No red tag on it.
dustonian said on April 24th, 2016

Cool, thanks Dustin. Wasn't gonna count my send if it were still closed ;)
MartyV said on April 24th, 2016
first pitch is 5.10b - Strawberry Fields, the upper pitch is 5.11b/c Lucy in the Sky. Can be climbed as one pitch with a 60 m rope. Now open. Enjoy the view from the top!

I got on the first "pitch" and really enjoyed it. Some pretty interesting and beautiful climbing. Supposedly the view from the top is very good.
dustonian said on April 27th, 2016
First pitch is 10b. 2nd pitch is well worth doing, multipitch sport with a great view of the Miller Fork drainage. Can link with a 60m, but it's kind of spooky with the ledge in the middle.
dustonian said on April 27th, 2016
So approx. bolt count would be at least 13 draws if linking, 100'. I'd recommend belaying at the second anchor though above the 5.10 finish though.

15 or 16 draws. Good movement on crimps, but nice route for the view alone. Route is still cleaning up - a few platey holds came off.

First pitch was cool. Will have to get back and do the second soon.

Very fun. Climbed as 2 pitches. Note, after first set of anchors, there is a single bolt after a roof move followed by another set of anchors above a ledge where you can belay for the 2nd, steep pitch. 2nd pitch rock looked dodgy, but nothing broke off. Crux midway. Awesome view from top.

Highly recommend doing this in the fall just for the view. Did it all in 1 pitch with a 70m. Nothing felt dangerous or spooky about doing it like that, although I had just done Heath Ledger so I may have been desensitized. The 5.10 climbing to the first set of anchors is one of the better 5.10s in the gorge IMO. I crumbled some edges of feet up top but the holds were solid. This little area makes for a nice 1/2 day of moderates and is less likely to be crowded. Thanks Marty, this was a fun one.

Some of my best days in the Red were out with Marty finishing up the first and second pitches of this one, miss you brother
