Description

This is just an easy introduction to slab climbing. It is a good warm-up for some of the neighboring routes. Just don't blow that first clip.

Protection

This route has three bolts on it. It's a rather long trip to the first bolt but the climbing is very easy. This route shares the bolt anchor with E.O. Lieback.

Easy enough, but I suspect it would be rated 5a (i.e. ~5.9) on Scotland's Etive Slabs where there are no bolts! Oct 16, 2013

There's a fairly big gap up top between the third and final bolt and the anchors at the top left. Granted the climbing is very, very easy up there, I felt better throwing a offset into a small seam about 6 feet above the last bolt. May 28, 2013

This route is a very nice introduction to Vedauwoo friction climbing, but the first 15 feet to the first bolt are why I gave this a 5.6 PG rating. Once the first clip is in place, the difficulty also eases. Initially climbed in Terray mountaineering boots! Over the years, I've done this 20+ times. Jul 20, 2010

Fun route and well protected. The "crux" is getting to the first two bolts, then it's very easy the rest of the way to the anchors. To me the first 15 feet felt like 5.6 climbing, while the top half of the route was much easier. A fun, but short, climb. Jul 23, 2009
