Rock Area Index / Humphrey's Ledge / Three Brushes (5.5)
Directions:  Hike left along the cliff past Robinson Crusoe. As the trail goes uphill to Wanderlust take a left on a separate trail. The first route you come to is Easy As Pudding Pie. Keep walking uphill to the 3rd small climbing area. Life Of Riley starts in the middle of the slab just under the right angling overlap about 20' up and directly below a bolt in a brown streak about 50' up. Three Brushes is just uphill from Life Of Riley.
Description: It took quite a lot of brushing to get this face clean.
    Pitch 1: Climb the face past horizontals and left leaning cracks to a 2-bolt anchor not visible from the ground. Look for a flake to thread halfway up. 60'

Gear: For the new leader: small to medium wires, small cams to .4, tricams, 4' sling. For everyone else: 4' sling around the flake at halfway. (so says the FA party)
Descent: Rappel the route with a single 60 meter rope.
