DescriptionThis is a very nice wandering line up the South side. The first pin and crack is about 18' up, so a spotter is advised. Traverse right on the ledge then straight up to the anchors. The protection on the route is fairly spaced out, but it is certaily adequate if you place good pro. This is the easiest route to the top, and could be used to place topropes on the other lines.
Again, there may be new bolts that replaced the old fixed gear, but if not be sure to back up the old pins with good gear. Hopefully they also replaced the old anchor at the top.
Overall a fun short line. Several nice face climbing cruxes with rests. Feels longer and more exposed than it looks from the ground.
