Description

This route follows the crack up the center of Park Ridge Rock. There is quite some friction on the rope but otherwise it's a nice climb.

Note: There are two loose rocks (10-30 lb) in the crack about 10 feet up. Do not place gear here!

Protection

There is a brand new anchor at the top (thank you John Knight!) The word is pro: small to 1.5"

This a great route to do on lead. It goes on all natural gear and there are more placements than you might initially think - I pretty much had the thing sewn up with everything from the smallest micro wire to a number four Camalot. It is thoughtful and interesting climbing requiring stemming and delicate balance moves. Once you make the first ledge, either belay at the three bolt anchor, or continue up the corner and belay, or best of all three options, step to the left and head up the thin crack in order to keep it interesting all the way to the top!
