DescriptionThis is a great route with a hard start and good protection. Go through the damn and right down to the open area. It is on the North Corner of the rock which is the next rock over from Better than Pool & Pie.
The route starts right on the corner which is very steep on some smaller holds to the first bolt. It stays hard until somewhere between the second and third bolt where it eases off. The rest of the rout is fun easier climbing on bigger holds. There are 4 bolts in all. The anchor is solid.This and the other routes on the back of the damn are a great way to finish off a day.
You can TR this by leading the much easier Better Than Pool and Pie and walking over to these anchors.
