Description

This is THE 5.11 sport climb at the City. It is a must do, if you can find 2 ropes and enough draws. :) The west side of Window rock is closed for the birds in the spring, so check for closures in the parking lot.

This route is the second sport climb on the right side of the west face. Scramble up a low 5th class ramp system from the right side of the climb. There is a single belay bolt on the ramp. Follow 17 bolts through continuous 5.10 and 5.11 terrain, with a crux at 2/3rd's height coming out of a depression in the wall. The final 40 ft to the anchor is an endurance test on solid 5.10 climbing.

Rap with 2 ropes. I have heard that a single 70M rope will work, but I have not tested this theory.
