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.
