Lean Years is the first route just to the left of the large boulder. It is a good lesson in delicate face climbing. The holds are small, and a sneeze or a light breeze could knock you off. Getting off the ground is the crux. Some call the first move 5.11d, but it is basically just a boulder problem start at V3/V4. Try this to improve your footwork, as the angle is very low.


5 quickdraws for bolts. Fixed anchors. The route is very short and well protected.

Yeah we thought 11a was somewhat sandbagged with the direct start. Fun route, good lesson in delicate face climbing indeed. Sep 7, 2009
