Description

This is the bolted face on the upper section of the Fourth Triangle. Two variations exist for the start:

Takin' it Easy (5.7/5.7+?)-- goes straight up the steep face for 25 feet, then gradually works left on juggy terrain to the anchors. The crux is between bolts 1 and 2- thin moves.

Takin' it Slow (5.6)-- follows the shallow dihedral to the left for 25 feet, then breaks right up the face to join Takin' it Easy at the juggy terrain. A thoughtful step out of the dihedral onto the face will get you past the short crux.

Location

This is on the NE face of the upper section of the Fourth Triangle. To access it, rap from the anchors on the summit or scramble in from the woods to the west. Belayers can anchor off a small tree on the top of the lower section.

Protection

Takin' it Easy (5.7/5.7+?)-- 7 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.
Takin' it Slow (5.6)-- 6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

I cleaned a few holds today, but it could use more cleaning sometime. Oct 18, 2017

This route is fun, but like other routes in the area, it needs to be scrubbed down with a brush to clean up the holds. Nov 23, 2015
