Featured slab sprinkled with a few horizontal ledges along the way.


Located right before you get to the kiosk. In the corner, near Cumberland Blues.


Bolted...maybe a cam if breaking into the grade? Anchor at the top.

good warmup, nice face climbing. anchors are shuts and they are very worn. you should not lower or toprope through shuts, they are not up to climbing specs. rappel only from shuts, attach slings or draws to lower and toprope. the right anchor needs replacement as it is 1/3 worn through.

as of 9/18 the Cold shut anchors are severly worn. deep gorves worn thru 1/3 to half of the shut, from top roping thru. be careful, if any one with the tools wants to replace the ancors ide be willing to pitch in for hardware.

Thanks for the heads up on the anchors. I will notify the proper person and it will be fixed.

Possibly the easiest 5.7 that should not be over looked! Fantastic warm up, with a variety of holds. The crux is hitting the anchors!

Yeah, shuts look good as of 8/3/13. Great warm-up climb! I'd agree with Jeremy, the crux is the last move to the anchors.

Yes, the shuts looked okay but noticed wear from top ropping already. If you are new to climbing and reading this, please DO NOT top rope or lower through shuts or rap rings! Build your anchor and only rap off of fixed gear.
