Description

Start on the same first bolt as Easy Pool and proceed to the left and up. The route goes straight up from there. Be careful not to scrape yourself as the rock contains edges which can be sharp enough to draw blood. Nice view from the top, scary getting there.

Location

Left-most of three sport routes, immediately to the left of the upper pond.

Protection

4 bolts to cold shut anchors. Bolts 2, 3 and 4 are quite far apart compared to the other routes on the face. There is ground fall potential on lower bolts, so this is not for the faint-of-heart on lead. I would suggest leading an adjacent route and top-roping this climb. They are of comparable difficulty, and much better protected.

This is a sweet route that can take some pro in the horizontal cracks between bolts. In response to the other comment: the bolts looked ok. I did rap vs. lower off the 2 bolt anchor. It's the the two bolt anchor to the right of this which is seriously suspect.

This route is much easier than it's sister climb to the right, Easy Pool (5.7). There might be one move of 5.7 on the first 1/3 of the route but other than that it is very straight forward 5.5/5.6 with very positive holds. I toproped it at first based off what I read from MP but encouraged my friend to lead it after seeing it took gear between the runout at the top. Bring singles of .75 - #2 and you are good to go. Not a rated "R" route as the description suggests. Don't let it scare you. Probably not suitable for a beginner lead but someone solid at the grade should have no issues here. Nov 22, 2015

R may be appropriate. A fall more or less anywhere around each clip would put you on the deck/ on a ledge. That being said, if you are okay with 5.7 this should be easy pickin's. Nothing hard about it. Just don't fall! Feb 16, 2016

climbed this today, agree that the crux is near the start. Left anchor bolt spins but all other gear looked solid. Would suggest belaying from the ledge to avoid potential fall risk. May 28, 2018
