Description

An easy climb, but a fun one for kids. Just a little difficult at the end, but otherwise just fun. To get to this route, you will find an access gully at the north end of the cliff. This is a 5.4 descent with a slightly tricky slab at the bottom, so you may want to hang some webbing for safety or even rope up. The first inside corner on the cliff with a big column at its base is where this climb starts.

I disagree that there's no pro on this route. It is a trad route and is very much protectable with a standard rack.

The finish is the crux... lamenting how to finish it is what Lloyd did, and I imagine he lamented for a while as I did when I lead the route. Jun 5, 2006

I totally agree with Glenn. The route can be protected and the last move is definitely what Lloyd was lamenting. Jul 23, 2007
I lead this route also, It takes gear just fine you just have to look. You don't even have to look that hard. It takes anything from small nuts to a 2 or 3 BD C4 cam.

Oh and the roof is really fun to pull. :) Nov 12, 2008

I agree this route is leadable. I started on the right side of the column. Good cam placement and a solid chock to sling halfway up. Jun 1, 2009
