Description

This route is a top rope route that has hardly no traffic, here's why. It is hard to locate the anchors. You scramble around the back side of the Rock of Ages and climb to the ridge just down hill form the exit hole of the Cave Route. The anchor bolts are placed in a crappy exposed area and have no hangers. Once you put your own hangers on, build a top rope anchor and toss your rope down. Careful not to get it stuck in the trees down below. The Climb starts up a face that is loose and chossy due to lack of travel. It also climbs through the canopy of several trees which makes it a pain in the ass. Other than that, its kinda fun.

Location

Up the hill to the left of the cave route. Good luck finding the anchors. Climb up to the arete on the top and follow it until you see the anchor bolts. Careful up here, its steep, loose and not fun.

Protection

2 Bolt hangers. Top rope set up.
