Access Issue: This crag is on DOE/LANL property. By climbing here you may be trespassing. Details

Description

Some may want to stand on the boulder to clip the first bolt, others may want to stick clip it. It's not too high up, but as was mentioned before, the rock is soft and prone to breaking, so be protected. Fun movement on large holds keep your attention all the way to the anchors.

Location

Route # 1 in the online guide. This is the left-most (west) route at Hospital Crag and perhaps the best in terms of movement and overall climbability. Begin in front of a large boulder that lies near the base.

Protection

4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

[Hide Comment] I can't in good conscience give this route more than two stars simply based on the less than desirable quality of the rock. If the rock were better, I'd give it three. Jan 29, 2008
