Description

After walking past the cave area and around a corner, you will find a large dark water stain on the rock, which has a set of bolts running up the left side of it.

Using the initial crack, climb up the water stain and onto a short face to the anchor above. The initial crack is an excellent learning tool for people needing to learn new moves at an easy grade of climbing.

A top rope can be set with minimal rope drag from to top anchors, though someone must first lead the route to accomplish this.

Protection

4 or more bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Anyone else find it surprisingly difficult to get off the ground here? Nov 22, 2010

Yeah Colin, this thing is awkward if I recall. You get a handjam or something and then thrutch up a few moves, at which point the climbing at the grade is more or less over. I probably wouldn't do it again. Nov 22, 2010

I agree, a pretty bouldery start for 5.7. It's not the most inspiring line, but serves okay as a warmup (literally, since it gets sun before the Main Wall areas to the left). Dec 16, 2010

I can see sport climbers might have a hard time with the start if they don't know how to hand jam... probably an easy 5.7ish hand jam followed by 5.5 slab climbing. If you don't know how to hand jam, expect the start to be significantly harder (probably at least 5.9 as a face climb).

I'm pretty sure there were more than 4 bolts as well. Jul 27, 2015
