DescriptionA fun top rope except that you need two ropes. This thing's always in the sun and has a cave up high with nesting raptors. So no climbing form Feb 1st through June 30th. You follow an ancient bolt ladder up a steep section of wall. Fun moves and really long and sustained. The crux comes when exiting the cave near the top. Don't trust the bolts for leading though they still seem to be good for aiding. If you aid it, bring a stick clip. There's a few missing bolts. Scramble around the back side of the rock to reach the anchors. Usually done after toping out on the Cave Route.
LocationOn the far right steep South facing side of the Rock of Ages. The approach takes 45min from the car, but 6 good routes are in the immediate area.
