Description [Suggest Change]

“Drink of this and take thy fill for the water falls by the wizards will”

While i didn't see Merlin while climbing this route, i was almost about to toss a couple of coins and wish for some non-human superpowers. Suspenseful and involved, The Wizards Well makes for an all-star extension to an already great route.

A continuation of The Fiver or Theoretically this bonus pitch is a magical ride into the unknown. This committing line breaks up and left off the large ledge and climbs up out of a roof towards a lone bolt on the face. Clip this and continue up a thin crack to the top of the wall. Fantastic movement, great exposure, good rock! Walk off or rappel the route.

Location [Suggest Change]

The Wizards Well breaks off of the ledge just above the route The Fiver. It is found on the north west most wall of Practice Rock.

Protection [Suggest Change]

A single set of cams and stoppers, a quick draw, and some slings.
