Start of Pleasant Pheasant


Probably the most climbed route at the Pet, and while it's a good climb, its popularity is more due to it being the easiest bolted route and therefore the warm up for everything else. Warm up or not, this is Pet Wall 10d, which mean vertical, pumpy, and not always obvious.


It's in the lower (left) area of the Pet wall and starts by going up a ramp and then breaking out onto the face left before the ramp becomes a cave.


Quickdraws, chains at the top.
