Description 

Fun route with varied climbing. Good warm-up route that shares an anchor with routes 4 and 6. Small crux section is face below the anchor. A few variations exist.


Location 

Central route ending at the central anchor. Starts up a crack to face and more discontinuous crack climbing. Rap or walk off.


Protection 

7 bolts + anchor. Well protected where it is needed. There are optional gear placements in the .4 - #2 range for the easy runouts.

Seen this one go using only traditional protection although Im not sure if I would recommend doing it. The Leader did not fall.

For routes 4,5,6 I was able to top rope it using the chains up top.
Fun routes, especially the crack climbing at the beginning
