Description

With the addition of more bolts the first pitch makes an excellent first sport lead. The vast majority only do the first pitch as the second pitch is dirty and is essentially unprotectable.

Location

An easily found water groove about fifty feet left of the start to Wherever I May Roam.

Protection

Quickdraws. Two bolt anchor.

[Hide Comment] Great for the grade. Just watch out for bombs being kicked off from the climbs above (ie Wherever I May Roam). Oct 26, 2015
