Description

Start just left of the low two-bolt anchor that's used for cave rescues. Follow run out but easy climbing for 20 feet to the base of a crack and shallow left-facing corner for good medium cams and nuts. This route is the shortest of routes at Styx.

Location

Shown as route #5 on the Styx area route topo

Protection

Small to medium cams and nuts to a two-bolt anchor.

This is a good route for new leaders or setting up for top rope climbs for beginners. This area has lines & holds everywhere so route finding is not an issue.

The routes on this wall are all plug and chug... Jun 30, 2015

Agreed, plenty of pro. I suppose maybe you could consider the first placement a bit high off the ground (depending on how you do it), so maybe that's where the PG13 came from? Either way I am a giant wuss, so if I thought it was safe, it must be pretty safe.

Edit: For what it's worth, I was on this yesterday and if you are a new leader and concerned about the potentially high-ish first placement, there is a great cam placement off to the right a few feet that you can use to protect the moves to the main crack system. Apr 25, 2009

Loads of pro all the way up--not PG-13 IMO. Jan 5, 2008
