Crap, doesn't deserve three stars. You have to wonder through all types of vegitation to get to the anchors.

move in the middle is.......non existent? felt 12a to me.
Josephine said on July 20th, 2009
there is a tree that is covering the top part of this route - maybe last bolt or two to the anchors.

It's time to buy a chainsaw.

New chain anchors and replaced last 3 bolts. First 3 are studs and are good (tightened 3rd). Tree did not interfere with route, but cut it back some anyway.

If you like fun, technical (i.e.: not overhanging and pocketed), then do this right. One move wonder? Are all routes with a defined crux a "one move wonder"? I'd call this route a "fun-move wonder".

This route has great moves! Highly recommended.

Best route on the ledge IMO...

Looked like the tree came down, and took out the vegetation on the ledge with it. Top of the big pine was speared into the ground below last weekend.
