this is the original "anchor"... i replaced it in ...


Yup the name says a lot.

In short... not recommended. I was on it on a very cold day so i might have been grumpy but the movement didn't flow and it was very dirty.

This is the bolted route on the right side of the lower cliff. Climb a tricky boulder problem to get to a hard (for 5.10) move on sharp holds. Take a rest and then continue up the slighly less challenging second half to the anchor.


The right hand route on the lower left cliff.


4 bolts to sun bleached webbing anchor with fixed lower off biners. Should be replaced if you climb the route.

There are rare plants at the base. Don't let your dog in there or throw your packs down, please.

I replaced the anchor today with some links and fixed biners. oh and i managed to climb it. Hard for the grade and not very nice movement at the bottom. the top was fine, but sharp.
