Rachael finishing up Sierra Corazon
Presumably this low-angled slab would be a good choice for beginning climbers. Good rock, nice position, and hassle free logistics make up for forgettable movement up this trivial slab.
Mark Beverly: "This is a great first-timer's sport lead. It's long and easy. Named after my Sierra. Another bolt was added to make a direct start from the ground-no need to start at the higher belay bolt now. Pendulum hazard exists on lower/rappel."

Best to rap off this route and NOT lower; if toproping, use your own gear (as you should anyway). I was not very happy to see some very small (eighth inch) hardware store screw links and biners (non-climbing type, BARELY able to fit a 10.5 mm rope into) at the top. The bolts are fine though. Aside from that, the climb was fun. Definitely on the 5.5 side of the 5.5/5.6 rating in guidebook.

EH was on my list for a long time. I went up to try it in the summer of '06, but suffered a back spasm while I was roping up at the base of the wall! That pretty much killed the rest of the 2006 summer. I missed the entire '07 summer/fall season due to a foot injury. Now I live in CO. Oh well...

The rap hardware on this route is pathetic. Don't TR off of that crap either. Next time I go climb here I will be prepared to change the rap gear out. Hopefully someone will read this and beat me to it.

i just climbed this climb this weekend, i will second jason to rap off this route. it is a fun climb for the grade but towards the top be ready for rope drag. need a 60m rope at the very least.I came up about 10 feet short of the dirt but easy downclimb where i stoped.Also be aware when you transition from steep to slab you are in the middle of bolts kinda far apart would not want to fall there.
