Description

As the Crow flys is directly south of The Tower. This fun sport route is straight forward with good hands and feet. There are four bolts that are reasonably spaced. The crux comes after the third bolt. There is a stemming lie back on a large flake. The climb finishes on a large ledge. You can start the climb from the ground or scramble up to the ledge below the first bolt.

In response to lifeblack. I pick and choose routes that I am aware of how the rope will be laying on the rock during my climbs. Yes, I pay attention to the rocks surface when creating my anchor up top and how I will be climbing. I have made modifications on my TR rig as well. So, as of right now I pick and choose climbs that I am familiar with. Honestly I got the TR rig as I prefer climbing outdoors. Do not have gym membership. Thanks::ROCKY :) Jun 17, 2012

My first lead.
Always fun. Took me two tries (on different days) to get through the crux (in between 3rd and 4th bolt).
After the forth bolt, traverse on the ledge and go to the top on the left. Makes thing a bit easier IMO. Jun 12, 2012
Raquel, when you're doing a solo TR, do you ever get concerned that since the rope remains in place while you climb, any wear across a sharp edge or rough spot gets focused at one point? I was looking through petzl's website for solo belay options, and although they don't specifically mention that as a problem, it's something I was wondering about. Jun 4, 2012

Hi Adam,

I use two mini traxion. One on the belay loop and one on a chest sling. I use my back pack to weigh the rope at the end. It is tough to find partners during the week, so I started looking into TR solo. When I am able to find a route that I can access from above and set the TR, I can work on my breathing and footwork. It's so much fun! :) May 29, 2012
I'd like you to show me how you do that Raquel! May 26, 2012

If you're just getting into leading and are a pretty strong climber, then this is the climb for you. Super fun mix of moves. One of my first leads and loved it. Jan 21, 2011
