An excellent kids climb on conglomerate. 4 bolts to anchors on easy climbing. This climb is on the far end of the wall, just before the narrow opening.


2 anchors and 4 draws.

For first time climbers or kids, I cant think of a better route that I've ever climbed.

It's tall enough and steep enough to still feel accomplished at the end and is very consistent at the grade (with no weird sections that many 5.5 and under climbs tend to have).

If you are climbing with kids or bringing friends who have never climbed before, this is the route to start on.
