Fun climb with limited pro down low.

Description 

The Far Side starts from a large block (comfortable for belaying on) to about 15' of face climbing to a couple of diagonal ledges on which you traverse up and right. It's mostly footwork until the upper, more vertical crack far to the right allows good hand use.Our church group of mixed ages found this an appropriate beginner's challenge, and enjoyed the fun, unobstructed rappel on this huge slab.

Protection 

Lead: small nuts/sm.cams/tricamsToprope: med. hexes/med cams/tricams/cordelette and 4' ext'n over semi sharp lip
