DescriptionThis is the second route from the right. It's pretty straight forward climbing up cobbles and other pieces of rock. The crux is between the second and third bolt, after which the angle decreases and the holds get bigger. It seemed a little cruxy just before the anchors, as your pulling on little pieces of rock that don't look like they're going to be there much longer.....but then what on this wall does. The Edward's guide states that the route "kept getting harder, then got easier, so who knows how you'll find it," but it's a fun short route none the less.
ProtectionIt seems the ground has risen, as the start is in a streambed, so you can actually clip the first bolt just standing there....if you want to use it. The second bolt is only about 3 feet higher. Also, the second bolt is a spinner. The bolt seems solid, but I think the sandstone has worn underneath the hanger making it spin. Two open shuts await you at the top.
