Yvonne leads Route 3 on a slightly cool and slight...
Middle section of route feels a bit run out and wanders, looks like there are a couple of variations bolted on this route - but follow the left bolt line to the anchors. This is a fun route despite the wandering nature. I often wondered if the route was originally intended to be a mixed trad sport route as there are lots of cracks that could potentially be used for trad gear. Although, the rock is a sandstone/conglomerate and rock strength could be an issue.
3rd route on wall from left - start is to the right of the big crack. Walk off or rappel.
6-7 bolts to 3 bolt anchors with rap rings - shares anchors with Route 1 and 2.

Route #3: Fun climb. Recommend climbing directly up the natural line to make this climb less weird and more enjoyable. Small roof (right side 1st bolt) to the arete then straight up the obvious face/crack as nature intended.
Left-Gully Variation?: Clip the left side 1st bolt then head out to 2 random bolts on the large blocks go up the left-side gully. A quasi(no stars)variation with a run-out top-section? Not sure.
