This popular route lies just downstream from the lead climb only area between the bridges, but well above the three pipelines that cross the gorge. This 120 foot classic, sustained line can be viewed in its entirety from the upper bridge and from the lookout platform on the east side. A fun and often tiring toprope workout with numerous variations. Very photogenic.
This route is usually toproped.
Toprope Protection [Edit]
Anchor off medium sized tree at top of route. This can be backed up using the large bent iron rod 25 feet uphill.
