Description

This is the farthest right route at the Arena. It climbs egdes and slopey shelves up a black wall. Optional gear placement past the third bolt will make the climbing to the anchor safer.

It is stout for the grade but the easiest route at the crag.

Protection

Pass three bolts and a #1 Camalot/#2 Friend placement (see photo) en route to a two-bolt anchor.

Per Gregger Man: all the hardware has been upgraded to stainless 1/2" x 2.75" Power bolts w/ClimbTech hangers. There are now quicklinks with LocTite and rings at the top.

Red Camalot placement is obvious and solid but hardly needed. The climbing at that point is on good holds, and the distance between the bolts is not very big. Sep 29, 2015
