Climb the mellow corner/crack to a steep finish onto the big ledge. Bolts below the ledge can be used to set up short, beginner topropes. But for full value, continue up the face on the left side of the crack to the top.


Starts in a corner/chimney toward the left end of the wall. Look for bolted anchors just below a large ledge about 40 feet up.


standard rack, bolted anchors at the very top and below the large ledge

Not a bad route, it climbs better than it looks. I've lead it a couple times and I think the gear is OK on it.

I thought this was a fun route. I led it all the way to the top, past the anchors just below the ledge. It's a little easier the second half, though the rock is a little looser. Not sure it's recommended in terms of safety.

This is a great route to do as a first lead, short length, easy gear placements and good stances. Pulling the roof to the anchors adds the only challenge.

Great pro throughout, as well as easy placements from stem positions make this a mellow trad lead. A pink tri-cam in the pocket towards the edge of the roof protects the crux move swimmingly.
