setting top rope


This climb starts the same as Lisa Falls Left. But it angles across the face to the ledge below the bolt. Clip this bolt with a runner, and continue up the new seam/ crack to the anchors.


2 bolts are up top for an easy top-rope set-up, or for anchors. See Lisa Falls Left. 1 draw and a runner for the bolt. And I believe some small stuff can protect the upper crack.

Again, a hole about 15 feet off the ground showed promise, but didn't pan out. The bolt with 2 runners and a brass nut just above the bolt was all the gear I could place on this one. Very Runout.

Due to rockfall, the placement Nathan mentioned can now be practiced from the ground-- this route is about 10 feet shorter now. Also, the bolt in the description is smashed flat.
