After walking past the cave area and around a corner, you will find a large dark water stain on the rock, which has a set of bolts running up the left side of it.

Using the initial crack, climb up the water stain and onto a short face to the anchor above. The initial crack is an excellent learning tool for people needing to learn new moves at an easy grade of climbing.

A top rope can be set with minimal rope drag from to top anchors, though someone must first lead the route to accomplish this.


4 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Anyone else find it surprisingly difficult to get off the ground here?

Yeah Colin, this thing is awkward if I recall. You get a handjam or something and then thrutch up a few moves, at which point the climbing at the grade is more or less over. I probably wouldn't do it again.

I agree, a pretty bouldery start for 5.7. It's not the most inspiring line, but serves okay as a warmup (literally, since it gets sun before the Main Wall areas to the left).
