The most obvious of the routes on the sport wall. Climb straight up and the slightly right at the end to get to the anchors.

Created in the mid 90's this steep wall of drilled pockets is one of the more popular "project" routes in the area. Due to the nature of the climbing taping finger tendons is highly recommended. No real crux just sustained pocket pulling.

As an alternative this has been done as a clean aid route. Just take along a collection of hooks and experience A5 hooking right off the ground. The more sane will clip the bolts (just for gear not for aid) A couple other tips... watch your face if a hook pops, and a pink tricam would not go unused.


On the Sport Wall

Find the two large anchor bolts at the bottom of the cliff, behind the memorial to young fellow who lost his life here recently. The steep line of pockets straight up is the route.


5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. The bolts while not new are in decent shape. If attempting this on lead it is probably worth rapping in and inspecting them before whipping on one.
