Description

Climb the center of the wall. Stoppers and cams, shuts. This is a great climb and a solid 5.8 all the way up. It is a trad route but shares anchors with "That 5.10a". So if you don't have gear, you can certainly top rope this climb.

Location

Center of the Wall to the right of That 5.10a.

Protection

Stoppers and cams, to two shuts.

Great sustained climb. Solid placements all the way up, mainly mid-size. May 8, 2010

Great for starting trad leaders. The crux is right at the bottom, and once you're past it, there are tons of nut and cam placements along the whole route. Nov 21, 2010
I disagree with this being a good beginner lead. The crux comes with the 0.5 placement a few feet below the climber's feet. There is decking potential there without an extremely attentive belay. One could finagle in an okay RP, but that's not exactly a common piece for a new 5.8 leader. It's fairly well-protected after the crux move though. Sep 23, 2018
