Description

Look for a horizontal crawl up high on the west face of Practice Rock. First Lead climbs the crack that goes up to the left side of this crawl. Short, and straight forward, this is a good lead for beginners.

Build a gear anchor in the large cracks up on top. If you are new to building anchors and are with more experienced climbers, it is easy to walk up the back side and pre-build the anchor.

Walk off.

This is really a GREAT place to do a first trad lead. It is not too long, lots of different kinds of placements are possible, and there is a good place to practice building an anchor on top. Oct 16, 2009

Remember to be respectful of the peeps camping on the other side of the rock. Don't walk up the back side if its occupied. Sep 19, 2011

This is a "full value" if it's actually 5.6! Maybe not any harder, but is a great warmup and also an excellent technique builder for novice climbers. I enjoyed it. Shorter climbers find it more like 5.7... Somewhat athletic start. Jun 28, 2012

Once an anchor is set atop this climb, there are several lines slightly harder and more challenging for beginners practice. Jun 25, 2013
