BETA PHOTO: Top-roping Alpha Centauri


Alpha Centauri thins out a bit in the middle section. Some resources list this as a 5.7, but it's generally considered a 5.8. Generally considered a good beginner's lead however it can be a bit tricky in that you can't always see the next bolt ahead of you (but they pretty much go straight up, every 8 feet or so).


Just to the right (uphill) of Oz and to the left (downhill) of Straw Man. I believe the belay platform is the last (lowest) of the newly reinforced platforms.


8 bolts; steel biners on the anchors. As always, if doing multiple laps on a route, please use your own draws, then lower off the fixed biners when done.

Anchors have been replaced with 1/2" bolts as of 10/19/14. 5 of the 8 lead bolts were also replaced. Steel biners added to the anchors.
Thanks to the ASCA for the hardware.
