The bottom of Cinq Jour D'Affille

Description 

A good beginner route or lead. Basically just follow the line of bolts. Stay to the right of the bolts towards the small roof. The crux is about half way up and can be avoided by traversing far to the right.

  • RCM&W #64, p.130.


Location 

This route is half way between Micro Balls and the broken corner crack of Cookie Crumble.


Protection 

4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Please use your own gear when top roping.

Gwen's first lead on Cinq Jour D'Affille.  Good beginner route, except it is a bit dirty.

Enjoyable as a warm up or cool down. Better climbers should try to stick with the bolt line. Neos can cut right into the nasty crack. Loose rock at the top, but just be smart with your holds.

Solid ledges most the way up. If you decide to veer towards the crack expect some crumbly rock.

You can add some challenge to the route by working the small pockets to the left of the bolts. My advice is to try the left variation on top rope to prevent swing.
