Marcy on the FA of this fun, easy route


Located on the feature left of Dr. No Way. Follow the low angle arete up past two bolts, plugging gear in horizontals in between. Anchor is just below the large summit block. Good rock and ample protection options make this a nice lead for a beginner trad climber.


Gear to #2 Camalot; 2 bolts.

Huh, I look at the FA list and think 3 registered nurses...but, I like the pun that Eric used better, more clever. Maybe three ribald nurses...

Hahaha Arjun ... "ribald" ... very clever. :)

Your first guess was what we were thinking, but the alternate suggestions have been quite funny!

My other guess was 3 rebel nurses. You should let me post up the origins of the name. Way more interesting. Ooh, I see a thread coming.

LOL this is turning out to be as much entertainment as the climbing.

Ribald might be more appropriate if you knew what one of the three wanted to call the route to right ;)
