Eyebolts to anchors. A sling and a few longer draws will make the rope run better.

Starts on juggy overhang (still very dirty,but easy) to the rt of Sesame St., up slab to a steep face and belay ledge left of big pine tree. If you are doing the second pitch, continue up through the notch and step left to the Sesame St. anchor. A very easy second pitch has been bolted but not cleaned that brings you up to another ledge and eventually will lead into a third up the high white buttress. The rock on this climb is somewhat crumbly in spots, but the climbing is fun and airy.

3 out of 5 stars cold

I fell on this one, bummer. It was a cold day and my hands were just numbing out. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I gave this an R because the landing is downright nasty, and the first bolt is a bit high up. The rest of the route is fine.
