Description

This route ascend the bolted left-middle section of the south side of Indian rock. Climbing is getting up a featured slab, a crux is located around the second bolt.

This is a good top rope route for children, as many of the holds can be complimented by "kid size" intermediate holds along the way.

Protection

2 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Climb up the left side of the rock to access the top bolts for a top rope.
Instead of standing on the ledge below the bolts try to access the top anchor from above. 
Good bolts as of 6/04. It used to have an old home made bolt hanger and skinny bolt. Good warm up for the other friction routes. Aug 19, 2004

I'm short (5'2") and I can't reach the bolts from the ledge, so I always have to pull some extra moves at the top. Kind of annoying when your last bolt is pretty far below you. Other than that, it's a fine route. Nov 16, 2009

This was my first outdoor lead and I loved it! fun on small holds and slightly run-out at the top. I don't recommend climbing this in the wet as a fall from the anchors would scrape you up a bit. Dec 24, 2014

Really good warm up small crimps to a ledge then runout to the top and great views of San Jose at the top Dec 2, 2016

Short, thin, and fun. Tougher than it looks and great practice for thin slab climbing. A bit of a stressful lead if 5.8/5.9 is your limit, but doable if you trust those feet and stay cool. :) May 22, 2018
I found that one of the hangers for the anchor is spinning. Some of the other bolts at Indian Rock have some construction glue on them to lock the hanger in place, that is not the case here.
The bolts feel safe. But keep an eye on it. Jul 9, 2018

Both left and right variations on the bolts are fun. Right is more technical. Jan 4, 2019
