Description

For aspiring leaders enrolled in Climbing 101, University Route should be on the curriculum. This short, easy line makes a great first sport lead.

Starting at the base of a small rock outcropping above the main trail, climb the face clipping bolts as you go to finish at the anchors.

Location

At the top of the approach trail from the road, instead of going left to the main cliffline, continue straight up a slippery slope to a separate rock outcropping.

Protection

Three bolts; bolted anchors.

Ascended December 2017 -- first leads sports climb ever. Climbed on 1st attempt after stick clipping first 2 bolts. First bolt is pretty high from the ground. Thought it was an excellent choice for first time leaders. 11 hours ago

Great for teaching to clean--a more experienced climber can easily hike around the back to the top and watch/talk someone new to cleaning through the process while double-checking every step. Mar 14, 2014
