Description

The easiest route here, but don't let that fool you. If you miss a hold, the crux can get significantly more challenging. Climb the blunt arete to anchors. (Indy)

Location

Right most route on the cliff.

Protection

SS ring top anchors available. Most people top rope this route though it is also a great lead on trad. It takes great gear but is not an ideal lead for a new trad leader. The top is the hardest part for the climbing AND gear placement so best to enjoy this after you are a bit more seasoned as a trade gear leader.

Gear options are few, probably not best for a new leader. It looks possible to access anchors for top-rope, but it didn't look easy. South-facing and very hot in the summer with no trees for shade. May 25, 2015

But in the fall/winter/spring, this wall is awesome. Jun 5, 2015
Beautiful in 46F weather when protected from a 20mph west wind - almost t-shirt weather. Gear was good until the top, didn't see anything good for the last 10' of easy climbing on the ramp but you can escape to even easier terrain up the gully to the right and clip anchors from the top. Anchors are in great condition. A 5.6 leader might be better off on the bolted route just to the left of this. Jan 2, 2016
