Description

This climb goes up for two pitches, and it is the second route, but first line of bolts, on the left side of the rock. The first pitch is 5.8 in difficulty with a crux above the last bolt. The second pitch is 5.9 and is about 125' long. This pitch has a lot of bolts on it. My partner and I both thought it was on the easy side of 5.9. The best holds are small, it is a definite slab climb.

Location

This route is the first bolt line you will see on the left side of the rock. The first bolt is about 40' up but the initial climbing is easy. There are raspberry bushes at the bottom. You do two rappels to descend and the first rap requires two ropes.

Protection

Seven bolts to anchors on the first pitch and fifteen bolts to anchors on the second pitch.

With two 70 meter ropes, it is possible to have the leader climb both pitches together and then bring the second rope up for a single 2-rope rappel. Jun 1, 2016
