Description

A non-descript slab route with one interesting little mantle move. A quick tick if you are in the area. Probably not a bad wall for the budding leader. The mantle is close to the ground and well protected. Suitable for top roping the little ones.

Location

Faces north. Rap or lower.

Protection

4 bolts Anchor on top.

"The mantle is close to the ground and well protected." I disagree, and I agree with Dave and Chris. The bolt for the crux move is in a stupid place. You could instead place the bolt above the bulge and protect the fall, and it would be just as easy to clip. The way this is bolted, if you fell doing the high-step, you could easily get an ankle injury hitting the slab below. I knew I could do the move so I wasn't concerned but I definitely knew this would not be a place to fall. Jul 21, 2017

I agree with Chris. That mantle move is thought-provoking. Sep 21, 2014

A silly little route but there is a 5.7 move mantling past the 2nd bolt (easier to the right) after which it's a hike to the anchors. Oct 13, 2011

Yes, 5.7 for the upper section for sure. But the moves past the second bolt (a funky right handed/right foot mantle....somewhat insecure) is kinda heady. The slab above doesn't offer much for hands as you pull this move. You don't want to come off while making it through those moves or you'll come off and hit the slab (ankle breaker!). The second bolt should be about 18" higher (JMO). Check in the box. Not worth revisiting. Jul 13, 2010
