Description

Located in the center of the South wall on the sport rock, this route was is the most varied climb on the rock.

This excellent top rope heads up the right side of the cave on overhung rock, mantles out of the cave to some easy slab climbing, which makes for an excellent break. After 15' of slab, dive into the slightly overhung face (go up 6' left of the large dihedral feature where there are two sidepulls you can see from the ground) where hands get small. A final lunge puts you to the top using a sloper that's not quite as good as you expect.

Lower or rappell off the top.

Protection

3 bolt top anchor up top, bring a couple of 6' slings to get the rope over the edge.

I liked this problem a lot. It is interesting how the rock changes as you move up the route. It starts very jagged and then smoothes out towards the top of the route. I think that there are quite a few routes that could be climbed on this face of the rock, don't be afraid to experiment going up different paths.

A final word of advice, sunscreen. The sun blasts you on this route be careful not to burn. Mar 24, 2004
