The easiest sport route at Dardanelle, and an okay warm up. Follow the first three bolts up the low-angle arete and then step left into the dihedral, where the climbing gets significantly easier. The chains are located on top of the wall at the top of the route, and a pain to reach for shorter climbers.


Uphill from most of the routes, this one wanders up a low-angle slab. The bolts are easy to find, and start directly above a small cave. Step off of the boulder at the base to start.


5 bolts to chains with fixed draws.
