This route ascend the bolted left-middle section of the south side of Indian rock. Climbing is getting up a featured slab, a crux is located around the second bolt.

This is a good top rope route for children, as many of the holds can be complimented by "kid size" intermediate holds along the way.


2 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Climb up the left side of the rock to access the top bolts for a top rope.

Good bolts as of 6/04. It used to have an old home made bolt hanger and skinny bolt. Good warm up for the other friction routes.

I'm short (5'2") and I can't reach the bolts from the ledge, so I always have to pull some extra moves at the top. Kind of annoying when your last bolt is pretty far below you. Other than that, it's a fine route.

This was my first outdoor lead and I loved it! fun on small holds and slightly run-out at the top. I don't recommend climbing this in the wet as a fall from the anchors would scrape you up a bit.
