Rope drag?


This is an easy route that is good for beginners. It climbs a slabby face with cracks and a bolt.


The start is the same as that of Jabba the Hut Levitates.


Standard East A rack.

Fun for beginners. I went WAY left to just play around then traversed over right. 5.5/6 Sketch little arete at the top. Amazing view!

Pro on this route is few and far between. The bolt at the top is loose and spins like a top. It's time for a new one. Also, one of the bolts for the anchor (the right one) is also loose and worn.

Cool climb! Bring a red Alien for a pocket (about midway up) that protects the crux.

Would like to replace spinner bolt on this route...but don't WANT TO PISS OF THE hard people who call this zone home. Would like to do it sooner then later ... it's a great route an there is no need for a spinner on such a mellow route that new leaders might want to get on? Nothing but respect. DF

This line is classic; thanks for replacing bad bolts.

We put a fatty 1/2" bolt on the anchor of this in the summer of 2011, since one was less than awesome. I guess we should have replaced the lead bolt while we were up there.
