Description

Smack dab in the middle sits this route - right behind the small pine tree. Follow the bolts up and try to stay off the big ledge to the right. There is a shelf right below the first bolt that marks the start.

Protection

3 bolts and two at the top. Mid [length] slings are needed to avoid rope drag for TR

Hello! Back in 1993 some [friends] and I put in these sport routes in "Poacher's" Rock. Five Finger Discount- at the time was deemed 5.7. Have holds fallen off? Nov 14, 2002

Definitely not. You would have to climb an incredibly contrived line to make this a 5.9. I used to instruct beginning climbers here for the YMCA and this was always the route we put them on first. I think it's the easiest route on the cliff. Nov 15, 2002

Although beware--I did this route again a few weeks ago, and there is a big friendly hold near the top, right of the bolt line, that looks solid but is about to snap off. Still 5.7 if you avoid it though. Nov 15, 2002

I think it could be a nine if you go straight up using the small crimps at the crux, most people move a few feet to the right to the path of least resistance. So yes, it's contrived. Aug 9, 2017

Agreed with others. Stay to the left of the bolts for the best climbing. Jun 12, 2018
