Clipping the 2nd bolt on Easy Pickins (10a) (Photo...

Located near the center of the Pearly Gates crag just right of Cloud Nine (5.9+), Easy Pickins starts up the face to a bolt. The sequence past the bolt can be a little tricky. The route then heads up a thin crack, past another bolt, and then either left to the Cloud Nine anchors or right to the No Room For Squares anchors.


Standard trad rack to 2", although anything bigger than about 0.5" will just be for the upper part of the climb. There isn't much protection to be had between the bolts, but the climbing is easy. Either anchor is bolted and you can lower off either with a 60-m rope.
