Climbing is NOT ADVISED. Social distancing is challenging with climbing. Citations may be issued for violations of the social distancing requirement for a minimum of 6 feet between people not in the same household. In addition, touching surfaces contacted by others, which occurs on climbing routes and between climbing partners sharing equipment & rope(s), is a risk.
Rescues related to this sport are highly technical, require a large number of rescue personnel and equipment, and they generally result in an ambulance ride to the hospital. Please respect the statewide state-at-home order.
As noted in the Lewis/Croft guide this is a visionary route, the first sport climb on the wall. Interesting that one of the hardest lines was also the first.
A little off vertical, techy, and somewhat sharp hold face climbing.
Follow the black patina up and a little left past four bolts. A couple more bolts connect with the next set of black patina flakes. Up and right a little as the patina disappears, then up to the anchor with a final sequence at the last bolt.
The first bolt is kind of high and a little difficult to clip. It is nice having it high once clipped.
