Description

Inside the corridor where the ladder spits you out look for a bolt. The left line is George of the Gorge. Make a few moves up to the first bolt then traverse left on easy moves. Continue up good holds face climbing and clipping bolts on your way to the anchors.

Location

The first (partially) bolted route at the bottom of Fern Creek ladders. The start is just inside the corridor leading to the main wall.

Protection

6 bolts to bolted anchor. Bring a #1 Camalot to protect the traverse.

I lead this route 8/12/2017 and the 2nd bolt seemed to be rusted and pitted to me. Aug 14, 2017

The moves off of the ledge are really dirty, and blowing the clip with slack out at the second bolt off the ledge has ledge fall potential. Be very careful there, and communicate with your belayer well, because they can't see you from around the traverse.

Other than that one spot, the climb is solid, and is one of the rare NRG easy/moderate sport climbs outside Bubba City. Sep 11, 2015
