Description

This is a great little route if you want to take a break from the rowing and seek a multi-activity day. The sandstone is really good and nicely featured on this sadly all too short of slab. The upside is you really can access it fast and you and your crew might want to spend most of the afternoon on it.

Pitch #1: At the lowest point of the slab belay on on a large group friendly landing just minutes from the "beach". A steep juggy start leads to finer features and then trend left to a two-bolt belay. 5.9, 6 bolts.

Rappel the route.

Location

Lower Rock Creek Campsite river right. Not quite sure about the GPS settings on this MP site, so please do not rely on those, unless someone techier than me can correct it:)!

Protection

6 QDs to a two-bolt belay. Lower or rappel to the ground.
