Description

Climb the short, vertical face via edges and textured rock with a distinct crux moving past the first bolt. The bolts, especially the first one, should be moved to allow better clipping by shorter people. It would also be nice if the anchor chains were replaced (and lengthened) as the ones currently in place seem more suited for hanging house plants!

Location

This is the furthest right bolted line on the west face and is located just right of a huge pine growing against the base of the crag; it's just a short ways right of Stanley-Slip Bobber.

Protection

3 bolts, chain anchors

Good warm up route for the other harder routes. Like the other comment said, an interesting few thought provoking moves following the first bolt. Apr 23, 2012
