|Hole in the Rock
This is a Three bolt sport route. The start is jut to the left of the hole at the base of the wall. The route consists of hard smearing between good holds with the first few feet being the hardest. The first bolt is quit high which leaves the "namesake" cable as the only protection right off the deck. The space between the bolts is just a little runout. Shared anchor with Hole In The Rock.

Fun climb, a little run out with an awkward start,the crux i'd say is a couple crimpers and smearing a couple feet above the first bolt.

This is a very fun sport route. You can clip the wires to make it a 4-"bolt" route. The crux is well protected. Would give it a G-rating for protection.

I bolted this route in 2001. My wife Gaylynn got the first ascent. The thought was to use the wire for the first clip, at least if you are nervous to get to the first bolt (hence the route name). Hopefully one day the wire will be removed and increase the quality of the route.
