Description

Starts up ramp/slot on left then follows the face past bolts to chains. Good moderate climbing with a small headwall at top. Great first lead.

Location

First route on the left kind of hidden in corner.

Protection

Bolts, Good anchors. You could use a midsize tcu in the middle of the climb if you care to

Agreed - a smallish cam might make a fledgling leader feel safer...but I wouldn't wanna fall on said cam since it'd be behind a somewhat loose block. One move past that and you're standing on a picnic ledge. Sep 13, 2009

I disagree on the "GREAT 1st LEAD" thing, can't see/ hardly hear the climber, not steep enough(ledge fall=broken ankle?), but then again prob just me, I usually don't prefer the hike-type climbs. =) Sep 21, 2009

Was out at Sweet Rock this weekend, did this one. It is fun! I grabbed my rack because I thought I saw a couple good placements and as I am just starting trad I could use the practice.. Ended up clipping only 3 of the bolts. Lowered off and came back later and did it again, and only clipped one of the bolts. This thing takes good gear. Only bolt I clipped was the third, and that is only because I didn't trust myself (I injured my leg playing tag the night before). Protects very well. Mar 6, 2011

Fun, easy 5.7 with a variety of interesting movement. Maybe not the best first lead due to visibility (belayer can't check for back clipping, etc) but definitely a good warm up or beginner lead. Confident climbers will not feel the need for extra gear, but there seem to be some good placements. Apr 22, 2013

While this climb felt soft for 5.7, the moves and climb itself were really fun and interesting. I thought this was a great warm-up for the rest of the wall. You definitely could go with the trad rack instead of clipping the bolts as Alex commented. Mar 6, 2014

If you're a 5.7 leader or new leader, bring a 0.4 or 0.5 for the runout 2/3rds of the way up. Apr 17, 2016

Left a quick draw about 3 or 4 bolts up on this route. Is an orange beaner on rock/bolt, white mid piece and silver beaner for rope. Jrm425@nau.edu if found! Aug 22, 2016
