Description

This is the farthest right of the routes. Scramble up the hillside from the creek about 50 feet to the base of the crag. The route, named after an enchanted forest in "The Lord of the Rings", follows five bolts up a great slab, with perfect, 2 pad deep incuts up its length. This is a great beginner lead, with the bolts just far apart enough to give one a little thrill, yet easy enough to clip from stable stances. It is one of the better 5.8s I've climbed when looked at in this manner. The route tops out on a ledge with a 2-bolt anchor.

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
