Description

Nice top-rope adventure for beginners. Start in a round arete and pick your way up to the weakness of a broken corner. The route is dirty, but should clean up.

Location

Left side. Directly right of the overhanging block with a drill hole bored through it.

Protection

2 Bolt anchor

This route has seen drastic transformation over the past few years. It used to have a huge roof that had to be surmounted. Now it is just a basic 5.5 line that is great for beginners. It was just bolted with six anchors to provide ample protection for beginning leaders. The bolt line forces the climber to use the proper start. Most had been using start of Pork Chop, which technically could still be used. Climb to the left of the first two bolts, then transition to the right and climb up into the flakes above. There is a nice little foothold with black mica to help make the moves from the 4th to 5th bolts. Please stay on the cleanest rock when moving up to the 6th bolt. The bolt line also allows for climbing to the left of the 3rd and 4th bolts, making the climb more of a 5.7/5.8 as seen in black in the photo. The blue line is the 5.5 version.
