New bolts, I am probably going to get them chopped. I did not put them in. This climbs has no crux. It is a great first lead for Platte friction.


It is on the very left side of rock.


Two bolts with chains (these appear to be chopped or partly removed). The second pitch goes 5.10a/b for one move getting over black streak and is very well-protected. There are chains (these appear to be chopped) at the top of the second pitch.

Per Jay Eggleston: there are no bolts or bolt anchors. A standard rack is needed for protection in the crack, at the start, and the upper slab is not protectable.

This route does not have any bolts, and there is no 10a move. It is only 5.6, and you use the tree on the ledge at the top as a anchor. You need a standard rack to lead the climb, and the slab is very runout! Dec 6, 2015

Looking at my book, you are right. A new bolted route does exist. It starts out low and easy to the first set of chains. The second pitch goes up th black streak which I agree is around 10a. The crux is pulling over the top. The crux is very well-protected. Sep 23, 2008

I believe Tin Can Alley takes the crack/flake system to the small tree in your photo (possible belay)- then goes left then back right past a couple old bolts to the newish anchor. There are a couple of 10ish face routes w/ new bolts to the right (incl the black streak mentioned). Sep 10, 2008
