This is route number 5 on the picture topo. Located on the far right side of the president's ceag, this route traverses up and right.

To reduce rope drag, it may be helpful to back clean (unclip) the first bolt after you have clipped the second bolt.


Far right side of presidents crag. Located across the valley from the Owl.


Bolts and two bolt anchor.

[Hide Comment] To protect my follower and also reduce drag, I extended my first draw. Interesting traverse that's circular like a merry go round! Had never been on a route like that. Feb 13, 2017

[Hide Comment] A unique route that follows an incredible series of holds just seemingly made to be climbed. May 4, 2018

[Hide Comment] The book "Fairview Mountain Crags" has this labeled as "6" in the picture but looks like they had a typo as it should be #7. Easy to figure out though with the description. Fun route, make sure to give it a try if you're in the area. Nov 24, 2018
