left most route on the wall. some loose rock. protects well with mostly finger sized pieces.


bolted anchor hidden to the left of the boulder, or walk off.

First trad lead. Fun to give it a shot. Anchors are the same as Another Notch In My Lipstick Case. Recommend using longer slings for anchors as they are tucked back; Then again the whole route has a decent amount of rope drag. Apr 6, 2015
FANTASTIC beginner trad-lead climb. Very straightforward moves, feels like a sport climb with pro.

Watch out for loose rock underfoot at the top. May 6, 2013

A good beginner gear climb on solid rock/not a lot of hallow rock = good for newer leaders esp because lots of Frenchman Coulee/Echo Basin routes are full of bad rock which takes some practice finding the solid parts.

There is an awesome no hands rest every few feet which makes placing your protection very easy. Also a nice solo.

One could place a 4" piece near the top of the crack if you wanted to but I would bring cams to .75 or 1 camalot and maybe a couple medium wires. Aug 18, 2012
