Presumably this low-angled slab would be a good choice for beginning climbers. Good rock, nice position, and hassle free logistics make up for forgettable movement up this trivial slab.

Mark Beverly: "This is a great first-timer's sport lead. It's long and easy. Named after my Sierra. Another bolt was added to make a direct start from the ground-no need to start at the higher belay bolt now. Pendulum hazard exists on lower/rappel."


Wanders up the low angled slab right of Out of the Shadows.

Best to rap off this route and NOT lower; if toproping, use your own gear (as you should anyway). I was not very happy to see some very small (eighth inch) hardware store screw links and biners (non-climbing type, BARELY able to fit a 10.5 mm rope into) at the top. The bolts are fine though. Aside from that, the climb was fun. Definitely on the 5.5 side of the 5.5/5.6 rating in guidebook. Oct 22, 2007

The rap hardware on this route is pathetic. Don't TR off of that crap either. Next time I go climb here I will be prepared to change the rap gear out. Hopefully someone will read this and beat me to it. Aug 24, 2008

i just climbed this climb this weekend, i will second jason to rap off this route. it is a fun climb for the grade but towards the top be ready for rope drag. need a 60m rope at the very least.I came up about 10 feet short of the dirt but easy downclimb where i stoped.Also be aware when you transition from steep to slab you are in the middle of bolts kinda far apart would not want to fall there.

Lowering biners and chains are adequate, probably were upgraded since above posts.
Lowering off worked just fine, but do knot the end of a 60m rope (it's close). If cleaning while lowering, just downclimb after you clean the lowest draw.

Great climb for little kids or other beginners. Feb 29, 2016
