Description

The second bolted line from the right. A little dirtier than the rest. Still a good climb.

Protection

2 bolts up top for the anchors and I believe 8 draws. Careful on the rap, use a 60 meter rope and aim higher in the gully. Or use a 70 meter rope.

Bolted 5.6 routes don't get better than this. This wall in general is a terrific place to teach new climbers or leaders. A good addition to BCC. Nov 7, 2004

There are 2 chains at the top, and only 6 bolts on the way up. I don't think the route is 110 feet (33m one way) since you can do it with a 60m rope. A 50m rope comes up a bit short. So the route is probably somewhere between 85 and 90 feet.

The route starts out easy up to the first 2 bolts. The area between the second and third bolts is the crux. After that it gets real juggy. Nice ledge at the top near the chains to set up an anchor. Aug 17, 2007
I agree with the length assessment. I did not record this route on MP, though I drilled it. I don't know how to change the info beta if that is the case. I am happy to learn these routes are getting lots of attention and drawing the crowds away from the slips. Sep 9, 2007

Like Andrew said, good wall for beginners. It's an easy lead. Good for dates too! Oct 3, 2008

This is a great 5.6 climb with many variations. Good belay area. The first bolt is a little high, but you can protect the bottom part of the climb with gear. this climb is east facing so it gets morning sun and afternoon shade. Jun 23, 2010
I love this route, well protected. Easy and fun with great movements. Wonderful route James! May 24, 2012

NOTE: The above description indicates this is the most rightward bolted route. That is no longer the case, I Ran to Afghanistan **which requires a 70 m rope**, is now the most rightward bolted route. Thanks to James Garrett for the beta, and the routes. Jun 28, 2012

Was surprised to see the chains had a figure 8 on a the left chain on quick link while up there today. That was a first for me. Is this how we are protecting anchors these days? May 9, 2013

I just started outdoor climbing a few weeks ago. This is a great climb to transition from indoor to outdoor and work on technique. Apr 22, 2014
