The left most route, Free Enterprise follows a small corner system for a couple of clips at 5.11 and then fires straight through the roof. A space of 5.11d/5.12a comes in pulling the roof and moving up the corner above the roof. Things run out a bit at the top on frictional climbing at 5.9.


Bring a 50 m rope and 7 -8 draws. There is a double bolt anchor at the top.

The slab at the third bolt has cleaned up a little, and I wouldn't call it crumbly any more. Sep 16, 2013

Clipping that second bolt at the crux (assuming the draws aren't pre-hung) would be *much* easier if you're tall. I'm 5'6" and I couldn't clip it from the juggy holds at the lip. I had to clip it in the middle of the crux moves. Used a lot of energy. Good route, deserves two and half stars. Jun 17, 2011

Good route, steep with a good rest before the crux. Felt like .12a to me too. Jun 25, 2008

Felt like 12a to me! Really fun, nice and steep, with a series of good moves on clean stone. Verging on 3 stars! Sep 13, 2004
Much easier for taller climbers. I'm 6'0 with a 6'4 span, and I could get the crimp above the crux without doing any other feet.... I feel that this route deserves a mentionable high-dependent crux, going at 11c for someone my size. May 18, 2004
Don't worry, after your above the crux, it's more like 5.6. Relax and shake out.... May 15, 2004
