This route is also called 'Civic Minded' in Peter Hubbell's guidebook.
So what does it mean when there's a memorial at the base of a climb; then, when your partner has just started leading, a small funeral breaks out on the road beneath you; all when you're climbing on Easter Sunday? Funny you should ask because it happened to us yesterday while climbing this route. It sure reminded me of my own mortality. My condolences to those who have lost loved ones. It's a comfort to me that there will be tons of climbing in heaven! Stay safe out there...
Just removed a tattered sling/screwlock anchor from about half-way up this route yesterday. The hardware is at the base next to the small memorial.
