Description

Another good first or second lead. I still enjoy ropegunning it for people, so it's a fun warmup even if you climb higher grades.

There is one tricky height-dependant (but protected) move to a hidden hold up high. Makes things interesting if you are under about 5'6". Watch for the pointy branch behind your head at the anchors.

There were a couple wiggly holds on this route in June, 2006. Nothing loose, and the belayer is well clear of the climber, but something to bear in mind.

Location

Right route on the lower wall past the first two towers. Goes up and right onto the arete of the main wall.

Protection

Bolts & chains.

Description is spot on right down to the height dependent move (easily compensated for with tiptoes, a butt wiggle, knee jam, & confidence) and the couple of loose holds. Great second lead or warm up. May 31, 2012

great first/second lead and I still enjoy leading it for friends new to outdoor climbing. If you're leading be careful moving to the first bolt. You're moving up to the right and the ground is falling away beneath you above some unforgiving rocks. Oct 11, 2010
