Description

"Popeye" is one of, if not THE, most popular routes at The Pit. The bottom section, rated 5.9, is very popular with moderate climbers as a warm-up or beginning lead. The upper section (responsible for the 10d rating) isn't nearly as good and rarely gets done.

Take care when belaying a leader on this route as you could both take a heckuva fall if they pile off the starting moves before clipping the first bolt.

NOTE: The quality rating here refers soley to the lower 5.9 section of the route!

Location

Popeye is the left-most route that starts off the lower level of the Mall Wall. Super pocketed face.

Protection

Bolts, chains with Mussy hooks.
