Description

Considered perhaps the easiest climb on the wall, this pitch starts just left of a blocky, pillar thing. As with most Friends and Family climbs, surmount steeper terrain down low to a long, slabby finish.

Location

It is two climbs right of By a Thread.

Protection

10 bolts.

What an unbelievable terror this place was. If anyone can PM me to get back my gear, thanks a million.

I climbed one route at Friends and Family, and as my partner was going up to the fourth bolt, we got caught in a random rockfall from FAR above. I got a golfball pebble in the head, just beside my helmet, blacked out for a second, and thankfully held her on the wall. We abandoned the climb, and as we were packing up, by the little boulder 25' from the wall, another even bigger pile of rocks came hurtling down across an even larger area. We went diving down the hill amidst zinging missiles and just left our gear on the wall. F*&^ that place. So, again, if any kind soul is wandering up there and wants to help by stripping the gear off the climb, "Help", send me a PM, and if any dumb soul is messing around on the gazillion fixed ropes, trying to 'clean' routes, while others are climbing hundreds of feet below, let's trade places and see how you feel.
