Michelle having fun on her first trad lead.


This is the easiest route at East Animas. It has good climbing on good rock, is easy to find, and protects well. A great beginner trad lead. Starts with a steep move to gain a nice, right-facing corner that leads to a large ledge and bolted anchor.

There are three possible second pitches that can be done from here (Left Picto, Picto Crack, Right Picto).


Start on the right side of the Watch Crystal, where the approach trail reaches the base.


Standard East A rack.

A very nice, short pitch for learning to lead. Gets a bit crowded on weekends, but it's not so bad if you arrive early.

Fun route for intro to leading. Many TR variations exist. Bring some small gear.

Could this be lead with a set of stoppers and a couple larger hexes?
