Description 

This is pretty much the same description as Lynn's Route just a little more difficult and a little more interesting. This could be a nice, lower level, slab lead with new bolts and an anchor. As is, it should be considered R/X. If top roping, be very careful of the loose rock during setup. We used approximately 150 feet of rope and slings to top rope off of trees.

Location 

The route is in the upper half of the slab (see photo). The route is the next bolt line to the right of Lynn's Route (maybe 20 feet to the right). I started a few left of the bolt line to avoid the poison ivy at the start. To walk-off, head up through loose rock/gravel. Where possible, head right across the top of the slab then walk down.

Protection 

4 bolts and no anchor. The first bolt has been replaced slightly right of the original. The rest of the bolts are junk.

I am glad this has an anchor and good bolts now. It gets easier towards the end but is good "slabbing".
