DescriptionLocate Water Moccasin (5.7); this is the well-bolted, left-arching friction route climbing the right edge of the brown section of the wall.
Eyes of Amber climbs past two bolts and a long runout, optionally protected with small trad gear, to the obvious ledge and tree.
A 50m rope is plenty to get you back to the ground, but the tree is on the small side of confidence-inspiring for a rappel anchor.
Vogel describes two routes (Chivalry's Not Dead, 5.7 and Snakes in the Grass, 5.9) in between Eyes of Amber and Water Moccasin. Neither route showed evidence of bolts or chalk. In fact, this description MIGHT be for Chivalry's Not Dead, but that just makes Eyes of Amber more ambiguous.
