BETA PHOTO: 2nd bolted line from left topo w/new bolts


This route climbs up from the previously existing plaque on the Memorial Wall. Climb up the large blocks and jugs over an overhanging section to the juggy slab above. Sustained, but not too tough for a 5.9 climber.

This is second route from the left on the Memorial wall.


3 bolts to a 3 bolt top anchor.

The first bolt is still missing as of this posting. Would make for a bit of a spicy on-sight, especially if you are not use to the climbing in the Quarry or not very comfortable on-sighting at least a few grades higher. Fun moves though.

Thanks Aaron and Brian for the new hardware, it made the Memorial Wall shade a fun surprise this weekend.
