Description

Follow the first line of bolts up to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. Easy terrain past the first 3 bolts, a distinct crux around bolt 5 or 6. There were a few loose "flexing" holds, particularly some underclings, so be careful, wear a helmet.

Location

First route on the reservior wall

Protection

8 bolts to anchors with chains.

Lots of loose rock, even by BB standards, watch out. Sep 12, 2013

Fun, slightly technical climbing with a beautiful view in the sun. If you stay left of the bolt line it's a bit more interesting. I didn't find anything too loose, but definitely wear a helmet. Oct 27, 2014

Climbed Ian's this afternoon, there is a spinner hanger around number 4 or 5. Didn't have a nut tool on me to snug up. Maybe the next person to send this can put a few turns on it, as long as they know what they're doing. all in all super fun climb with great views, not too much loose rock, just check your hold before you weight it, and plenty of feet.

By this point, I'd say most of the loose stuff is gone. A few holds wobbled slightly, but they were wedged deep in underclings, I think you would be hard pressed to pull them out. Sep 16, 2018
