Description

Not much to say here of cruxes, but any difficulty on this climb comes from the holds either being less than obvious or sloping rather than incut. A reasonable climb for beginners to warm up on and get into the lead-head before moving on to harder climbs.

Location

Down and right of the lower bihedral there is a face of rock that is slabby on the left and more broken but vertical as you go right. Downhill and right the formation becomes even taller, as the low angle lower-tier is unearthed and the upper section bulges outwards.

Quick Work is the first route encountered if you walk down and right from the corner from the scramble/approach up to the older routes on the main Bihedral wall (where "Canine Corner" is.). It is the left-most of 3 bolted routes on short face.

Protection

3 bolts to a bolt and ring anchor. Do not TR directly through the rings.

This route is "ok" but nothing great. If it was like 100', it would be worth doing. As it is, it is something you can do if you have done everything else in the area. The guidebook says to bring a few cams, but I can't see why you would want them. Nov 27, 2013

Both anchor bolts were loose. One to the point of almost falling off. I tightened both today. May be caused because the anchors are Fixe rings and when you rappel or lower there is a large force trying to rotate the bolts. Sep 5, 2011
