A fun overhanging sequence is the crux, big holds. A good easy overhanging route to do to get in the swing of things.


On the left wall, it has a really big cobble in the middle of it.


4 bolts and chain anchors

Nice 5.8+ climb with the crux on top. The holds are all there. A couple bigger moves through the roof, and you're there. Very fun, albeit fairly short climb.

Fun route and like Alma said some bigger moves through the roof at which I inched my way on with a couple of quick short moves.

2.6 star average?
crazy talk. This is a really great route to get warmed up on.
Easy climbing down low, with just slightly harder climbing up top.

Nice, short, fun 5.10 with a tough overhang at the end. Great as a warm-up for more challenging climbs, but some of the large cobbles mid-way through and towards the crux were slick from bat-poop or something (at least in May '14 they were).
