This one is guaranteed to put a smile on your face, the holds are ridiculously large. The first pitch alone is a great outing for newbies or the aspiring 5.8 climber.

The first pitch climbs the shallow crack with red bed-frame hangers (I think the first hanger disappears and reappears periodically, maybe bring gear if the first bolt looks too high for your comfort level). It has bolted anchors.

The second pitch follows the bolt line up and to the right of the ominous looking roof -- fear not, the climbing stays easy. There are more bolted anchors.

Rap with two ropes, or using the bolt and chain anchors for the trad climb to the right of the first pitch.


It is up the hill and to the left of the main wall with the easier mixed / trad lines. The red bed-frame hangers on the first pitch make it easy to spot.


A dozen quickdraws should be plenty. Bring two ropes if you don't want to rap twice.

The red angle-iron hanger give this route away. This was super fun and easy to run the 2 pitches together for a wonderful 55m pitch, although a few slings will reduce rope drag. Really a great route! May 26, 2018
