Climb a slab up to the prominent white dike arcing across the face. Start with a fun move directly above the first bolt, follow the clip up to a two bolt anchor with rap rings, only need 4 draws.


Right of Beginner's One, the obvious wide crack.


4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor is now gone:(
Higher up takes 2&3 cams, enjoy the walk off sorry about the person who removed the bolted anchor!

Pretty good climb;...I liked the route;....clipping the 3rd bolt gave me problems;...maybe it's because I'm short........
Good addition the the campground cool climbs.... Mar 25, 2012

A fun one right near the campground. Draws only. 3rd class it to a nice belay area 20 or so feet below the first bolt. May 9, 2012

I understand as of 01/2014 the bolted anchor is chopped, well so much for an easy way off a sport route on the BLOB, BFD! Feb 18, 2014
