Description

This is a finely featured gem and a great moderate route. Downhill from Hole in the Wall, find a bushy gully with scrambling hinting of the climb to come. KC ascends the well protected highly featured face on solid rock. I felt this would make a great beginner's lead.

Protection

Seven bolts to two bolt anchor.

As the route description says, this route is a great beginners lead. I had my first lead on it, and scary as it was, it was good training for the epic climbs to come. Going to come back for tabula rasa! Apr 11, 2010

Great route for 5.6 lovers. The approach is tough to find, and looks harder than it really is. Once on TR, climb along the point of the arete on the left of the bolts to make a thinner route (5.7 or so) that is also fun. Jul 5, 2004
Did this route last Sunday and it was a blast! IMHO, stay a little left/center of the bolts on the arete' and it probably goes a little harder. Stay to center/right and it's a little blockier and an easier line (5.6). Good top-roping options on the adjacent wall once you climb to the bolts. Be careful of loose rocks and some smaller flakes being loose and, by alls means, keep an eye out for rattlers - that almost ended my day before it even began! Sep 11, 2002
