Shannon up this great starter lead.


This climbs a pillar, on the right side of the lower left side of the wall, then up an arete.
Some tricky moves are encountered just before the anchors.
This is to the right of "Welcome to the Gorge".


7 bolts.

Good arete climb for a beginning climber, especially as a first lead climb.

Fun climb, gets run out in the middle, but its super easy climbing.

Quick climb up the pillar and first 3 bolts leads to a slightly runout 4th bolt, then to the arete and some fun moves up to the top. Fun easy climb.

I personally would not put a first time leader on this route.

Fun climb, although run out between 3rd and 4th because it's more like a scramble but after that you are climbing up some slightly inverted surfaces before you reach that next bolt and it's a total mind screw. Crux comes at the top before the anchors. Pumpy but a lot of good feet. Thought the rock was rather slick. But what is nice is that it is in the shade for hot summer days. I thought it was harder than a 5.6 but maybe it's just because I'm short (5'4") and relatively new to sport leading.
