Description

This is the bolted face route to the right of Punderdal. This part of the rock is festooned with brown spots of good rock, of which this line rides the middle of, leading left a very dense area of brown (some loose in this area) midway up. Fun route, well protected.

Protection

6-7 bolts, bolted anchor(s)

I'll second Jeff's comment that P2 is more trouble than it's worth :) Jan 17, 2013

Bolts are new and good up to rap station. Above that all 1/4" button heads. Good route to warm up on, good fun but I suggest don't do 2nd pitch not worth the time. Go to rap station and rap down unless you want to work on multi-pitch skills. then after 2nd bolt go left to 2nd belay anchors if you go all the way straight up you'll have to belay from a big rock tie off or a crack behind the rock will take BD#2-4. Then walk off(facing lake to the right). Apr 2, 2012
There are 3 rap chains after you pass 3 (or perhaps 4) bolts. Could be done as a two pitch.

Just ticked it today--my partner and I didn't see anyone else the entire day! Dec 17, 2009

Great warm up route on the rock. a little runout in places, but par for the course at this crag. Liked it much better that some of the central routes, less people around you and WAY less slippery May 12, 2008

A fun beginner's climb but be aware; like most of the easy to moderates at Big Rock it is sparsely bolted. May 1, 2007

I enjoy warming up on this climb as it is not as "slippery" as some of the other climbs of the same rating. Mar 29, 2007
