Description [Suggest Change]

Climb the face past 3 bolts at the right end of the wall. The start is about 10' to the right of the Cornflake Crack.

Location [Suggest Change]

Ten feet to the right of the Cornflake Crack on the inside wall of the Library.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three bolts


Location is on the backside wall (west face) of the main detached block, which is the east wall of the corridor behind that block. Almost at the right / north end of that wall (by the widest easiest entrance to the corridor). May 24, 2014
This route is not a "warmup" (except for 5.11 climbers), and it's not 5.6.

Several tricky moves, with at least one critical move relying on a small or non-positive fingerholds.

Work out very carefully the belay / protection methods required to avoid hitting a ledge or bulge if blow one of the moves in the lower half - (? bring a stick-clip ?)
. (I am not suggesting that the bolts are badly placed -- I think the problem is just the structure of the rock). Aug 24, 2014

Fun route. I thought all the hand holds felt pretty solid. Oct 17, 2017
Great warm up for a cold day! Super fun route with great holds. If you don't like scary first moves you could bring a stick clip, but commitment is a big part of sport climbing! Do watch your belay position though. Climbs 5.5 but could be 5.6 if you began with a sit start like we did today. Nov 4, 2017

Agree with Kenr, This is not a 5.6, closer to 5.7+
Good warm up though Apr 16, 2018
