Description

The first line on the right. It starts fun, but eases up past the ledge to the chains.

Protection

All bolts 4? I think, plus chains.

I'm pretty sure Gordon Larsen put up the route, but I'm not positive. Jan 21, 2006

Easiest climb on the wall. The route is just okay and I recommend only as a warm up. Jan 22, 2008

Totally agree with the sun comment. We were there in late morning, and it about blinded the belayer. That aside, this was a great warm-up climb, with more huecos than I knew what to do with. Would also be a good first lead due to the easy climbing and well-placed bolting. Jul 30, 2012

I think the second or third bolt is currently spinning...Good warm up for the climbs to the left. Mar 26, 2013

My son Marty, bolted this route and was the first to climb it several years ago. When he came down from the first red-point of the climb he had blood on his leg mixed with sand. The route was re-bolted today (2-13-2015) with stainless steel glue in bolts. I moved a couple of the bolts to the left so it may now be a little more feasible to top rope it. Aug 29, 2013

Due to the left leaning nature of this climb, it isn't really a good route to top-rope. The 10's to the left of it are better for top-roping activities. Aug 14, 2014

I rebolted the climb a few days ago. I used stainless steel glue-ins (Wave Bolts) by climbtec. It has 5 bolts to chain anchors. I also tried to position the bolts to make it more top-rope friendly but the climb does naturally traverse a few feet to the left. I hope people continue to enjoy this less than average route as I notice that it gets heavy traffic. Probably because it is the only "easy" climb at Chuckawalla. Mar 2, 2015

Decent warm up. Crux is coming over the bulge. Would recommend against toproping or lowering off this route as ropes have cut a notch into the rock over the bulge. Nice route to teach friends to lead and rappel. May 23, 2015

This video may be TOO long to watch. But if you can speed it up, you can see this is her first rock climb ever. It is a nice fun climb.

I love to take people here for the first time. First success. Feb 21, 2016

Fun route, really easy with lots of jugs. It was great for my siblings who don't all have climbing shoes. Apr 12, 2017
