Description

Low angle route with lots of holds. An unintimidating route with minimal exposure, well protected, and often nicely shaded by surrounding trees. Great spot for first ever climbs, first leads, mentoring a new climber, or bringing the kiddos. Try it as a step up in difficulty from its neighboring route 00-06. Lower off.

Location

Climber's Right of School Rock.

Protection

6 bolts. Mussy hooks at anchor.

[Hide Comment] Climbed this area over the weekend (6/24/17). The nut on the left bolt at the top chains is finger loose. I could have backed it all the way off with bare fingers. Unfortunately I didn't have any tools with me to tighten that sucker down. If you lead this, be sure to check the nut on the anchor before lowering. Hopefully it will get remedied soon! Otherwise, great fun climb on low angle face with ample edges and pockets. Jun 25, 2017
