Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot Details

Description

A right-facing corner with a nice crack in it. This is a good intro climb for new leaders. Plenty of protection.

Location

Right under the large steel electrical tower.

Protection

Standard Rack up to 2 inches. Gear anchor at the top. I suppose many tie off to the tower above, but I think that is verboten.

Climbed on 9-24-16 looking for a way to get back to the upper trail. There is a bolted anchor at the top of the route now. Sep 27, 2016

This was my first Traditional lead and it was harder than a 5.5, I would say it is a 5.6 for sure. Short but sweet climb makes for an interesting lead. Reminds you that leading is leading no matter what the grade. Be careful of gear placements higher up in the climb as the rock flakes are hollow sounding and not ideal placements. Worth doing if you are just starting out leading on Trad. Sep 3, 2010
