Description

Climb the featured, low angle slab past four bolts to anchors at the top of the face. Orignally done without bolts, it was later bolted to make a well-protected climb for beginning climbers.

Location

This, the left of two routes on the narrow south face, is located just right of a right-facing dihedral system (a downclimb for the formation) and just left of Wildrose.

Protection

4 bolts, chain anchor

As a first lead, especially for climbers not used to "blank" slab - the upper section may cause pause for thought. Jul 3, 2009

Perfect climb for younger kids and first time climbers who are scared of heights. May 13, 2012
