Description

This climb is the first you encounter in a neat little section of Sandstonia that is separated from the rest of the cliff by large blocks at either end. This little alcove is often quieter then the western side of the cliff and affords nice views of the river. The cave-like hole created by a large block 50 feet right of this climb creates a cool place to hide or eat lunch in the summer.

Start on the broken face just left the dihedral in some cracks (takes gear, but only a new 5.7 leader might feel uncomfortable without it). Climb the broken face, passing a roof on the left and continue up and right on the nice face to a small ledge and the anchors. You can TR the adjacent route (Lieback and Enjoy It, 5.10d) from this anchor with a directional or 2.

A fun easy route on cool rock.

Location

At a dihedral, just past where the cliff juts out creating a narrow section of the trail (just past the prominent flake and corner of Butterfly Flake and Plumber's Corner).

Protection

6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor

Well-bolted, sustained grade, of decent length. This is a climb every 5.7 leader should do. Aug 17, 2015

I thought this was a way better route than Bobby D's Bunny. Sustained and fun. Aug 26, 2015
Fun crux makes for a cruise up the rest, don't forget to clip once you make the move though. It'd be easy to blow right past it. May 26, 2016

Was my first outdoor sport lead. Nice climb with enjoyable but simple crux. First 10 ft or so was seeping water, but was dry the rest of the way. Poor stance for cleaning anchor. Sep 1, 2016

My first outdoor lead. Great climb with a lot of interesting juggy features. The crux is this slabby dihedral that might be hard to commit to for shorter climbers, but if you're willing to risk a big swing you can sort of walk off to the left of it and climb up an easier section. Jan 30, 2018
Really fun climb. Big holds and decent length. Jul 28, 2018
