Description

A nice mixed route, Sands of Rhyme is a good change of pace from the predominant sport routes at Lower Leda. Good protection and nice climbing.

Starting at a sizeable flake, work up the flake to a shallow overhang and a bolt about 25' up. Work up onto the face and continue past another bolt or two to anchors at the top.

Location

Starts just left of the Up Game; shares bolted anchors with that route.

Protection

Mostly medium cams and passive pro, up to 3". 2-3 bolts on the upper face.

This was a really enjoyable mixed route for me. Basically you need 3 cams for the lower part 1 big for the huge flake and 2 medium size which climbs at maybe 5.7-5.8. Then it turns into a nice thoughtful 5.10 sport climb. This is the PERFECT climb if you are a 5.10 sport climber and are starting to learn trad. You get to place 3-4 pieces of gear on relatively easy climbing then since you get to a sport bolt you don't have to worry about your placements too much as you have bolts to back you up. Sep 11, 2017
