Description

This is the first climb encountered and maybe the easiest on the cliff. Head straight up the slab following an obvious line of 4 bolts. Straying into the off-width on the right probably lowers the grade a bit.

You'll understand the name if climb there long enough in the summer months.

Location

Choo Choo ascends the low angle bolted face just left off the wide crack with the tree growing on the left side of the crag. This crack is likely the first thing you will see as you arrive at the cliff. Dukes of Hazard (aka Three Gems) is further to the left of this climb. .

Protection

4 draws plus bolt anchor at the top. The bolts are judiciously placed but a smaller crack in the back of the off-width allows for some supplementary protection for the faint of heart.

The current guidebook lists the climb as ending with "a few moves up the offwidth". I thought finishing on the slab above the 4th bolt, without touching the crack or its side at all, was a half-grade to a grade more difficult (i.e. 5.7+ / 5.8) Sep 28, 2015
