Itís Not What It Seems

Directions:  Hike left along the cliff past Robinson Crusoe. As the trail goes uphill to Wanderlust take a left on a separate trail. This route is located on the lower slabs at the far left end of the cliff to the right of a large right facing corner and small roof. It is the bolted route to the right of Gaggle of Geese.
Description: Unusual moves and choices characterize this slab and face climb. There are excellent views of the valley from the upper cliff.
    Pitch 1: Climb the slab past 2 bolts to the horizontal crack about 25 feet above the ground. Climb over the crack and on the left or right and continue up the face to a difficult move (crux) that gets you onto a ledge. Clip a bolt and continue up an easy but unprotected corner to a lone bolt and 2-bolt rappel anchors higher up. (70')
