Description 

Start climbing to the right of where the rope falls. Follow up to a ledge that has some grass growing in the upper part of it. Then follow the rope up to the bolts. There are no real surprises on this route, it is just solid and consistent.


Protection 

Set of chains at the top. Very quick and easy set up.

A very easy and simple toprope. It could be done on trad with very severe run outs but there is a a lack of any bottleneck placements. For all of those who seek the more natural approach to the top, do not bring rigid-stemmed cams....

An excellent beginner toprope. Chains at the top and easy walk up provides an excellent beginner outdoor climbing gym. Try lots of variations till your heart's content.

It doesn't make sense to use this as a trad lead. If you want to do trad, try the obvious, dihedral crack to the left. It eats gear and is a perfect intro to trad.
