Description

The climbing is difficult right off the ground and although it eases off a grade past the first bolt, it remains relatively difficult to just above the second bolt. Getting to the third bolt is 5.7 but scary as hell. If something breaks off just before clipping the third bolt, you will definitely deck from 35' up. Getting to the 3rd bolt requires trusting long, thin fins of rock that point straight down and could break. Horrible bolting job! Once you clip the third bolt, the climbing is only 5.9 to the anchor.

Location

As you enter the alcove, Hoedown is the first route, near the entrance, on the right. The anchor has chains for lower off.

Protection

4 bolts. Chain links for anchor.
