This route lies just to the left of the arete that separates the north and east faces of the wall. It leads up the overhang to a slabby finish. Like the name implies, it's (P1) a good warm-up for the harder routes on the cliff. It has 5 bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.


5 quickdraws are all that's needed.

A decent 'warm up' route as mentioned in the name. The bottom is a bit of an eliminate but once situated on the arete, the climbing is nice to the top. Wondering what the second half of this route goes at, from the anchors to next 5 bolts? I would only give this a 1 star for rock quality and the amount of lichen still on the rock. Well protected moves getting over the first lip and to the anchors.

The extension is plainly chipped. It would not be "free-climbable" otherwise, but this certainly deserves noting.

I don't get how the name implies warm-up.

P1 is 10a/b-ish, P2 goes at 13a-ish.

P1 is a great warm-up (as the description says), but I wouldn't have thought it was any harder than .10.
