Description

This is VERY well-protected, a nice route for beginning leader at the grade. It is a little dirty with lichen and road dust but overall a fun route with good holds and options the entire way up.

The first bolt is an easy 5.6 towards the right side of the face, then move up left towards the 2nd bolt. There is no real crux, just fun, well-protected moves the entire way up.

We rapped down from the 2 bolts at the base of the chimney and kinda barely made it to the ground with rope stretch on a 70m. It is recommended to walk off to the east after you top out through the super easy chimney.

Location

This ascends the face right of the large roofs, just left of the left-facing corner. (I will add pics next time we drive by.)

Protection

6 bolts to 2 bolt anchor (there was another bolt leading into the easy chimney above)

Fun climb, used a 60 meter rope with no problems. I counted 11 bolts plus 2 for an anchor. The anchor does not have chains but still has the webbing and biners. Oct 16, 2016

Definitely well-protected. I don't know why it's PG-13??? Aug 26, 2016
Well-protected indeed (even without the first hanger, the start is comfortable)! As of 8-9-16, there was some red webbing and 2 biners on the top bolt hangers. Good beginner lead. Aug 9, 2016

Did this climb the other day. I am not sure I would call 6 bolts on a 125 ft climb well protected, there were a few areas were a fall would have gave you a few bounces on a pretty jagged rock. However all the moves were solid and the spacing on the bolts made you have to think about each move before you made it, not real hard but added the "meatball special" factor to it. Probably not a lead for a first timer. Aug 13, 2009

Personally felt it was over-protected, and the last bolt above the belay station is really not necessary. Overall fun and quick. Jul 20, 2008
