BETA PHOTO: Little Monalisa...

Description 

Little Monalisa is more of a micro crag than a route... There are a few lines that go at different grades from 5.2 to 5.6...

Fun climbing on pretty much 3 different climbs... The left is the easiest...


Location 

A micro crag left of the rest of Artist's Bluff...

Protection 

A great place to top rope with beginners... 2 bolt anchor in the middle of the cliff... There are a few spots up top to build solid trad/tree/rock anchors... you could also lead the routes with a regular rack...

While it's a very easy climb, I didn't feel the protection was really that great. The spots you could actually place gear just didn't seem very solid, really.

There are TR bolts to use on the left side of the face. Its a pretty easy climb that's good for beginners.

Anybody think this should be divided by the four individual routes that are here? Just wondering what the consensus is...

if you know the routes well enough you can write up descriptions for them and ill just delete mine... i grouped it together because the book did it that way... not sure if they have real names...

Never saw your response to this Lee... So with some delay... I want to climb the routes again before I split them up so i can provide a good description, then I will post them up individually. Once I do that maybe we can split the cliff up by the main section and the Little Mona Lisa with the corresponding routes under the appropriate section.

cool, it might be over kill to split up such a small cliff with so few routes but it would be cool for you to describe the routes and then ill take down the one i put up...
