Description

From the guidebook: pleasant 40-foot pitch on the far right side of the slab. 3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Other notes: it is route #2 in guidebook. The route length is my approximation - use your own judgment. The moves just below the first bolt seem to be the most difficult.

Location

This is immediately to the right of the first group of trees that you see in front of the slab as you approach it from the North. The route behind the trees is Helios (5.8), right of Helios is El Sol and right of El Sol is Frigga (5.7).

Protection

3 bolts plus a 2-bolt anchor.

Eds. note that the hangers are thin and do not have rap rings or links. You may be able to thread these and rap, but these are not the beefy, Metolius-type rap hangers.

First bolt is 20 feet off the ground. Many of the easier routes here have very high first bolts - 20-25 feet off the ground. Mar 27, 2015

The move at the 1st bolt may perplex those less than 5' tall. Mar 31, 2011

Climbed today with Dave G. and Dan. Challenging crux getting past 1st bolt -- pretty much just feet and friction there. Felt like 5.7 to me. Short but fun climb. Jan 1, 2009
