Description

Bolted line to the left of the Perfect Crimb area. Mediocre route but an okay warmup or a good first lead. Starts on a hill and is awkward to belay for. Not very memorable, but hey, not every route can be 4 stars, then they would all be average!

Protection

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

Have brought 4+ folks here for their first outdoor sport climb. Good for beginners in terms of length and grade, but the belayer ledge is precarious. Can be taken a bit left from the crack above the 3rd clip (which can definitely be a challenge for shorter, first time sport climbers) but be aware of swing. Apr 1, 2017

My buddy just got engaged at the top of this route (and the top-rope anchors to the left)

Evan is right, I traversed, skipping the jam entirely.

Still a fun little route though. Jun 8, 2011

Are the new chains off to the left for this route? If so, kind of eliminates the need for the one hand jam.

The arete below the new chains is fun choss on top rope. The face/arete might be a whole different route though?

I like this chill little area back in by the perfect crime, good luck with the belay though. Aug 2, 2010
