Description

This is the first bolted line left of Grave Line. If this was a North Table Mountain climb, it would probably get at least one star. However, considering the quality of the routes at Monitor Rock, I can't even recommend giving it a go. It's not dangerous, loose or poorly bolted, it's just not worth messing with, unless you can't lead sport 10a. If you really want to climb sub-10a sport, go to the Butt Wall where there are 2 5.9s and a 5.8 worth doing. The climb is often busy simply because it is easiest and only 5.8 sport climb on the main wall.

Protection

6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I'm not sure about the 5.8 rating. Maybe 1 move of 8, maybe. Jun 2, 2006
Did this back in August. It really is a good warm-up, and a decent route - deserves at least one star. Oct 28, 2002

The only real warm-up at Monitor, but a great one! Good for beginning leaders, too, b/c it's well bolted. Jul 1, 2002
