Lake Tahoe, California, USA

Avg time to climb route: 2 hours
Approach time: 20 minutes
Descent time: 15 minutes
Number of pitches: 3
Height of route: 300'
Overview
This route has 15 feet of scary 5.9 runout face inserted in the middle of 300 feet of moderate 5.6. The second pitch starts modestly enough with fun 5.6 liebacking in a big right-facing corner (bring extra 2.5-4 cams to protect this well). The corner then morphs into a tiny seam and the adventure begins. Face moves, protected by RPs, gradually get more difficult and culminate in tenuous 5.9 face moves above questionable gear. The rest of the climbing is 5.6.
