BETA PHOTO: The obvious start of number Four.

Description 

Four and Four Bravo are maybe the better climbs on the lowers. Not really that hard but the crux is at the top and can be a little tough. It starts with lots of cracks, flakes and ledges and then you work yourself up under a small roof area with a large crack to the right on the face above the roof. Depending on how you do it there are some very small crimpy holds to get you out from under the roof and then move right into the crack. Work the crack up a move or two and then top out from there. It's actually a pretty fun climb with the tough stuff near the top.


Location 

Still on the left side of the Lowers but getting more to the middle. The big clue...start in front of the giant 4 painted on the rock.


Protection 

Top rope off of anchors and the Amy cable on top. There are some bolts but they become non-existent near the crux.

This is listed as a "Sport" route. Should be listed as toprope. Bolts go 1/3 way up and then nothing.

True. Going straight up the bolts come to an end. If memory serves, I think the original route may have followed bolts up the ramp to the right. I've never climbed it that way and I'm not sure if anyone does. Going straight up it's either a dangerous runout or a TR.
