Bride is the left route on Wedding Rock in the Lion's Den. Clip the fist bolt from the slab, then step down and hop on. Crimps, edges, and steep climbing on compact, fine grained rock make this a beatiful route. It shares the last bolt and anchors with Groom (5.9) to the right. Pumpy and steep for the grade. Watch out for a few loose flakes and holds at the start.


5 bolts.

What a great route! Fun and consistent climbing with awesome views. One of the steepest 5.7s around.

What an awesome route! Definitely the steepest 5.7 i've done, but on nice positive holds. Great climb.

Note: the first ascent of this route was made by Kris Whorton. Named as it was climbed on the first anniversery to her hubby, Randy.

All I will say is that a couple of the bolts are pretty far apart for a 5.7 climb. Yikes!
