The broken crack system on the right of the main wall. Finishes on right face.
Great trad practice route.


Start at the base of the broken crack, up some Class 3 to top. 1 base belay anchor bolt without a hanger.
Walk off right, or Rap off.


Two (2) bolt anchor, one bolt high.
Small to medium pro.

[Hide Comment] First trad lead ever!! From start to finish this is an awesome first trad lead. Chances for jamming and crack feet, but great ledges and holds along the way to keep ya warm and fuzzy.

Protects with a 3 high up to get you going. Then onto (.75-2 not that order) and finished with a couple nice nut placements.

Safe, fun, stellar trad lead!! Take your sporty friends......or don't Be safe.
