Description

Main roof fell from this route so it is no longer in its original form. Lie back up the obvious right-facing flake just right of Bon Voyage to a small roof. Traverse right under the roof. Mantle up on a small shelf and move straight to the top on a slightly overhanging rock. The name Three Horns is a bit misleading for this route. The first horn is a little shorter than it used to be. A local climber, Tom Evans, was doing this route when much to his surprise he pulled off most of the first horn! The belayer was rudely awakened by the rock fall. The second horn is still intact. However, the third horn, once looped for protection for the lead was removed in much the same manner as the first. This should give you some insight into the nature of leading at Capen Park

Location

large right facing flake

Protection

natural anchors, bolts

The description is a little off since the first roof fell down several years ago. Just climb straight up. Lots of loose rock, but you are at Capen. I would say to avoid this climb at most areas, but if you have climbed everything else the movement is fun. Mar 12, 2009
