Same start as for Four Holes.Stay left insted of going right.Pitch two climb very dirty slab to trees (5.2).


Start in front of a large birch tree.This is the third climb you will come to.


Pitch 1: Three bolts to the two bolt anchors.
Pitch 2: One bolt then trees

Did the first pitch today with my kids. Definitely a dirty route- lichen covered and I doubt that will change any time soon without more traffic. There was a rope and rings on the anchor bolts, but unknown age. I left 3/8" screw links on the anchors, with the links the anchors are now at the same approximate elevation and should be easy to clip with draws. An FYI- it was sunny today, and the 3rd bolt was extremely difficult to see from below due to the sun and where it is placed! My 60 meter rope was *barely* long enough to get from the base of the birch tree up to the anchor and back down!
