Eureka 5.6 at Lady Slipper- Global Village
Can you say vertical jug climbing? This route follows the orange and purple streaks up the vertical wall left of Fahter and Son.
This route is very popular and for good reason.
Despite the easy grade it can seem heady to lead and there is the element of loose rock involved on this route.
It's worth the walk in though, the moves are fantastic and the route unforgettable for beginners.
Look left from Father and Son to the obvious vertical face just past an overhanging area. Best to rappel from the anchors.
Bolts, bolted anchors.
Great for the new leader. I give it 4.5 stars.
great climb for the someone not used to bigger cli...
Great 5.6 with all the different kinds of rock to ...
rest day, putting up eureka
Fun to climb!
Very fun 5.6

Fun route, led on gear. A couple cams finger to hand size and some small stoppers protects it well. As of 5/22/11 the bolts aren't chopped but protects well with gear so I didn't use them.

Climbed it early this season, and it was 100% worth the hike. Easily one of the most fun moderates we hit the entire trip. Great views, lots of exposure, solid climbing, and un-chopped bolts. Next trip will be on all gear to make it even more interesting.

This is, hands down, my favorite route I've climbed to date. Juggy hold after Juggy hold, yet tall enough that there was a real sense of accomplishment after finishing it. Best route ever!!

Lead it on gear. Bolts have not been chopped in a while. This is another good one for the beginning leader, if they get scared or worry about thier gear placement they can just clip a bolt. Expect to see it crowded on the weekends.
