Description

This route was made so people could learn and practice multipitch techniques in a safe environment. P1 is a slabby 5.7 for a few moves, then the angle eases up. P2, while only 5.3, is actually pretty fun, near-vertical climbing, with big holds. Some people decide to finish on Three Fingers Three Meters to the left of P2. You can link both pitches if you have a 70m rope.

UPDATE: I installed another anchor half-way up Pitch 1. This is a hanging belay, and was deliberately put in so people could practice belay transitions from a hanging belay, which is more challenging than a transition on a big ledge.

Location

This route starts on the ground (as opposed to some others in this area that start on a belay ledge) below a basketball-sized depression in the rock.

Protection

First pitch is 5 bolts and chain anchors. 2nd pitch is also 5 bolts and chain anchors. I'd recommend rapping off of the top. Trying to lower or TR is possible but there's a lot of rope drag. If you want to set up a TR for a big party, extend the anchor out a few feet.
