Avery drive is well developed. There are a hand full of routes that are bolted and a few that have anchors at the top. Mucho bouldering and plenty of hard routes where you may want a rope. Great climbing all along Avery drive. And not as polished as the upper level at Chandler and higher too. Have fun.
