Description

A fun little cruiser to check out when the Boy Scout Wall is swamped. Solid rock, easy clipping positions, and a small crux at the top.

Location

The obvious route that moves left to right on the Rhino Wall.

Protection

5 bolts to a double rappel ring anchor station.

Really enjoyable warm-up. Lower straight down from anchor, way right of start, and toprope a fun V3 over the roof while you're still tied in. Feb 13, 2018

Unprotected 5.8 climbing leads to the first bolt then over-protected 5.6 the rest of the way. Long slings on the anchor will help avoid rope wear when lowering. It would probably have been better to have doubled up the last bolt and made it the anchor. Mar 12, 2018

Sir Brandt Allen is correct in some of his assessments. However I wouldn't say this route is overprotected. This was bolted because I wanted to provide another option for those new to outdoor climbing. This is a great route for the new outdoor leader honestly- a route to practice on and build confidence. Hop on this route after Little Jack Horner and enjoy your slow CHARGE towards moderate and hard sport climbing. As far as long slings to the anchor yeah those are always a good thing, many routes at NJC will create rope drag due to anchor placement though. Mar 13, 2018
