Description

A short sport route climbing a slopey and scrappy arete. The rock quality is poor but large pieces are not likely to come off...work your way up and pay attention to your feet.
One of the top anchors is a spinner...

Location

About a third of the way down the cliff heading south...look for the arete and the bolts.

Protection

8 or 9 bolts

This route is actually called Simple Pleasures. I, Ron Le Blanc, completed the first assent and put in the original bolts in 1996, not long after the tunnel was completed and the area opened up to climbing. I went back there three or so years later and discovered that the route was chopped. My partner Todd Peterson and I put up a few other routes that summer, both trad and sport. I will try and take some time soon and add them to MP. Mar 5, 2016
