Description

Clip the fist bolt from the slab, then step down and hop on. Crimps, edges, and steep climbing on compact, fine grained rock make this a beatiful route. It shares the last bolt and anchors with Groom (5.9) to the right. It is pumpy and steep for the grade. Watch out for a few loose flakes and holds at the start.

Protection

5 bolts.

Location

Bride is the left route on Wedding Rock in the Lion's Den.

All I will say is that a couple of the bolts are pretty far apart for a 5.7 climb. Yikes! Oct 26, 2015

What an awesome route! Definitely the steepest 5.7 i've done, but on nice positive holds. Great climb. Aug 27, 2003
