Lindsey climbing Gravity Boots.

Description 

Another excellent route for neophyte leaders, with a thin and reachy section down low that's a little harder than the grade. Follow the face just left of an arete up to the top.


Location 

Rocket Slab area; starts just right of Afterburner and left of the arete.


Protection 

3 bolts, bolted anchors.

Nice intro into slab climbing. A hold missing between 2nd & 3rd bolt makes for an interesting crux. Worth the climb.

I climbed this yesterday and had a pretty good time on it. It's a really simple climb but has a nice crux that takes a little thought when climbing. Good warm up for the 5.11s to the right of the area!

climbing the route proper seemed a little sandbagged at 5.7, but if you trend left at crux and reach for the bolts it feels no different than gravity boots next to it.

Went left of the bolts to keep it 5.7; good warmup. Going straight up the bolts is harder than a 7 IMO.
