Description

Start on blocks just to the left of Tetherball and climb a short slab and make a tricky step right. Above, follow the crack angling to the left (where Tetherball goes right up an overhanging face), past a section with thin feet to easier climbing above.
The anchor is very close to that for the Route 6- the climb that passes the high roof to the right, and both climbs can be done from the same anchor.

Location

This climb is route 7 in
Old New Place route guide. (I couldn't fit the route names/grades in anywhere so refer to the route descriptions here for corresponding number.)
It begins just to the left of Tetherball and the start of this climb is an easier way to climb Tetherball if spit off by the start of that route.

Protection

Standard rack of cams and nuts.
2-bolt anchor.

There's a fair amount of "questionable" rock through the easy top out moves, but the cool crux sequence makes this climb worthwhile. Dec 15, 2009
