Description

The far left side of the Meadows is mostly a collection of lower angle slabby climbs ranging from 5.7 to 5.9...However all the way left it gets quite steep and there is one line in particular that stands out....

No Money Down is a Gunks like climb that starts in a corner on the left end of The Meadows and goes over a beautiful roof (this was the farthest route left when the last guide was published).... Starting up the corner you climb about 35 feet up on awkward but moderate horizontal edges.... Rest briefly and head up to the roof toward a weird horn and a hueco.... Pull over the roof and, just when you think it's over, you hit the crux.... All the holds seem to be at odd angles, your feet leave something to be desired, and it can be reachy for smaller climbers...but don't despair, one or two moves to the left will deliver the chains....

This was a mostly trad route with one bolt at the crux, but it got bolted recently... So now it is for anyone and everyone to try....

Location

Far left end of the Meadows climbing a prominent roof.... after a few routes were added this is now the 3rd route from the left...

Protection

4 or 5 bolts to chains...(was a gear route when the last guide was published).
