Description

This route lies just to the left of the arete that separates the north and east faces of the wall. It leads up the overhang to a slabby finish. Like the name implies, it's (P1) a good warm-up for the harder routes on the cliff. It has 4 (5?) bolts and a 2 bolt anchor.

Protection

Quickdraws are all that's needed.

A decent 'warm up' route as mentioned in the name. The bottom is a bit of an eliminate but once situated on the arete, the climbing is nice to the top. Wondering what the second half of this route goes at, from the anchors to next 5 bolts? I would only give this a 1 star for rock quality and the amount of lichen still on the rock. Well protected moves getting over the first lip and to the anchors. Sep 12, 2001

The extension is plainly chipped. It would not be "free-climbable" otherwise, but this certainly deserves noting. Mar 7, 2002
I don't get how the name implies warm-up. Jul 15, 2002

P1 is a great warm-up (as the description says), but I wouldn't have thought it was any harder than .10. Jun 12, 2013

It is worth noting that the second pitch climbs very well at around 5.12+ (height-dependent). Despite being chipped, the stone is great, and the moves are fun. Nov 4, 2014

I suppose it might be 10b or so if you stay under the bolt line at the start as the holds are sloping downward, but as this was a warm-up, I climbed left of the bolt line on easier ground. May 26, 2015

FYI - the route actually has 5 bolts on it before the anchors (though the first two are super close). Apr 24, 2017
