Description

This is the oldest (and easiest) line at the cliff. It is also the easiest way to the large cave/ledge halfway up the main face. The ledge has a great position with an awesome view of the canyon.
Start on the ramp that slopes up and right, and look for the steps hacked into the face. Follow the steps left and upwards, past a couple huge metal rods (the 'Big Bolts') sticking out of the rock. At the second rod, follow the obvious line up and back right, into the cave.
Many people solo this route to get into the cave and then down-climb the same way.

Location

On the main wall. Look for the huge metal rods sticking out of the face.

Protection

If leading, the bolts can be easily tied off. In the cave, there are a couple more of the 'big bolts'. If you are not comfortable down climbing out of the cave you can rappel off one of the bolts.
There is a two bolt anchor in the cave, but no rings.

Photos

Many of the old rods which people used as hand holds and protection are gone. Only two remain, so this is no longer a practical lead (unless you use pitons as cams will not fit into these holds). It is really only a top rope now. Lot of lichen.

Some of the footholds have been obviously chipped, probably a long time ago. How do you give negative stars? Jan 12, 2014
