Bottom Side Down

Sonja at the crux of bottom side down.
This route is one of the two ways to access the majority of River Wall Climbs ("The Put In" (5.7) is the other option). Midway up, 5.10d moves lead over an overhanging section to 5.10a slabs above. In the River Wall tradition, this is a really fun route and since it's accessible from the ground, you can run up this route on your way across the bridge to Highwire Crag.
13 bolts; 2 bolt belays at the bottom and top of the route. TR from above (access via "The Put In") or rap down to the river and lead back up.
L->R for the crag." />

This route is often accessible from the bottom, as it is currently. It offers an alternative access to the other routes on the wall.

This was a great route. Very challenging roof crux. Upper section if pretty thin also. But, the holds are there.

Great route! Crux is clipping the 6th bolt. Wonderful place to climb and very rarely any other people climbing over there.
