Description

Gain the first bolt either from the left (harder) or using the corner (easier). A hard move reaches the second bolt and easier climbing to the first bulge. Careful consideration will yield an easy exit onto the hand rail, a moderate slabby face, and one last tricky exit move to the fixed anchor.

Location

Climb the face between The 5.7 Corner and The 5.7+ Corner.

Protection

8 protection bolts to a pig-tail lower off anchor.

Generally referred to as "The Kontos Sport Route". FA Tom Kontos. No anchor on top. Aug 5, 2010

An awkward climb that lacks good flow. Found the bolts to be well placed certainly not PG-13, wouldn't even call the top angled slab runout. Sep 20, 2011

Definitely a solid 5.10b/c route with a runout slab section at the top.

The bolting on the route is pretty awkward and requires 3 runners through the most difficult section of the climb. Because there is no anchor at the top, you have to traverse far to the right of the line (15/20 ft.) and use the large tree to lower off the climb. This make retrieving gear very difficult.

Recently re-bolted after discussing with Tom a couple years ago. There is now an independent anchor with pig-tail lower-off that lowers straight down the route. As well any awkwardness due to the location of the protection has been eliminated. The route always climbed well but the protection interfered with that. Now it is a recommendable and enjoyable route for modern tastes.

It should be noted that the route was originally put up on lead. Something to consider if you ever feel happy to clip one of the bolts on the route. Aug 2, 2018
