This outstanding beginners route is located between The Trama and The Ramp. Climb up a block section to a stance atop a small pillar, then continue up a trough to the anchor.


Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

Nice route to practice trad placements. Aug 17, 2011
Once the TR is set up, you can climb the arete which is probably closer to a 5.7 or 5.8. I didn't lead this to set the anchor so I don't know how difficult that would be to lead. Sep 30, 2012

This, along with Beautiful and Turkey Chute (and in that order) would make a great "beginning trad-leader" day. Mar 31, 2013

Another fun route for kids. Although, the stairs portions of this route can be a little tough due to reach problems. But the little fella is only four. For the rest of us folks, I will echo what others have said: excellent first lead and very protectable. May 8, 2015
