Description

Work past a couple of bolts through a odd sequence that uses shallow pockets and underclings to a rest. Then work right and up past horizontals. While climbing this route one winter and reaching said horizontals, I was surprised by the sharp prick I felt after sticking my hand in said horizontal. After regaining my composure and standing up to look into the pocket, I saw a small bat. Quickly, I checked my finger...no blood - good, no puncture - good, horizontal - about a 1.5 friend - good. Finish up to the anchors.

(no bats were harmed in the climbing of this route)

Location

One of the first routes encountered as you walk up the approach trail. Located on the right hand wall as you are heading down towards the SCC bulletin board.

Protection

Couple of cams, bolt, anchors.

I actually enjoyed this route. Redpointed on toprope (pinkpoint?). Lots of thin holds made this route a real balancy but fun face climb. Didn't notice any broken holds. Couple of nice finger pockets half way up. I'd rate this around a 5.9+.

If the second bolt was two feet to the left or a foot lower I'd call this a two star 5.9. But clipping the second bolt is ACKWARD with deck potential so I really wouldn't recommend it. Aug 20, 2012

Fun climbing for the searching eye. Zippered her with .5, .75, and #1 cams, and of course used bolts. Don't fall trying to clip second bolt, might hurt your ankles. Shouldn't discourage ya though for it's another Leda 5.9 goody. Oct 10, 2012

I put a #3 in the horizontal 3 feet above the 1st bolt. Made clipping the 2nd bolt feel better. #2 and #1 in horizontals above the 2nd bolt. Crux is nicely positioned right at the 2nd bolt Mar 16, 2014
