Description Suggest change

Sometimes, regardless of how difficult a route is, one climbs stuff just because the features beckon. FOAL is chock full of such nifty features.

P1: 5.10, 90 feet. Begin on the ledge left of SY. There is a double bolt anchor for the starting belay. Most of the climbing is not harder than 5.9, but a harder move may be needed for the height dis-advantaged. It is roughly 5.10 for the start, which begins on typical jugs. It is 5.10 again standing above the second clip. Angle right and up to a double bolt anchor. Some cool position and some huge jugs are found on the way. For kicks, you can top-rope the overhangs below.

P2: 5.8, 80 feet. Romp up on massive features. It is roughly 5.8 and bolted (!!).

P3: A 50 foot third class walkoff right that will take protection if you choose to stay roped up. There is a 2 bolt anchor.

Location Suggest change

This is left of the main alcove, and 50 feet from SY. From the top of P3, there is a well-cairned walk-off that runs North and then South around the crag to drop you in the main alcove.

Protection Suggest change

P1: 10 quickdraws; P2: 8 quickdraws; P3: 3rd class walkoff, but if you choose to remain roped up, there are several places for mid-range camming units. The top of each pitch has a double bolt belay anchor. A 60 meter rope is recommended if you intend to rap.

Eds. the raps are 75 and 80 feet each.
