Description

This is the first (leftmost) bolted line on the cliff as you approach from the road. The crux comes right off the deck. A quality line and good warm-up for the 10s to the right. Adding a couple pieces to your rack will lessen any slightly runout sections.

This route is highly visible from the road, so it would be nice to replace the bright red webbing anchor with something less conspicuous. I'll do it next time I'm in the area unless someone beats me to it.

Protection

5 bolts, a light rack for optional gear placements.

Pretty crumbly rock and a decent bolt spacing make this an exciting climb in a cool location. The rock quality makes any additional gear placements useless, except a single #.4 above the 2 or 3 bolt. The top anchor consists of one heavy-duty chain and one tattered/worn piece of webbing that's threaded through a rusted bolt. The bolt looks solid, but the hole that the webbing goes through is so small I could not thread newer webbing through. I gave it a shot. Be advised, and consider bringing along some thin webbing/cord to replace the existing worn-out webbing. Jul 19, 2016
