Ben Preston is cool!

Description 

With a horizontal shelf at the start and the first bolt at about fifteen feet up, the crux of this route is the first two bolts. The first move off the shelf is committing and the bolt is just out of reach. The first two bolts are steep and a huge hole after the second bolt allows you some rest. The angle eases off for five more bolts before you arrive at the chains. A challenging and fun route that makes you commit.

Location 

.1 miles west of the Bear Hollow parking, on the north side of the road. This route faces southwest. Park along the road and scramble up 50 feet to the base of the route.

Protection 

7 bolts and the chains. There were carabiners in chains as of 2010-07-09. A stick clip would be good for the first bolt.

This felt harder than .10a, also a fall from the crux down low could put you onto the ledge, or into a rather unpleasant tree, even after clipping the first bolt. Make sure your belayer is on top of things and paying attention. And wear a helmet! a few loose things here still. Cool wall though =)
