Description

Putting up new routes means long hard days and heavy packs.  Dust in your eyes, scraped knuckles from cleaning, sore arms from whacking away loose cobbles, and a hole in your wallet from stainless bolts.   Most days we found ourselves the first ones in the parking lot and the last ones out...  thus the name FILO (First In Last Out).   This route faces west and keeps the shade a bit longer in the morning, but also keeps the sun longer in the afternoon than the other routes at The Cove.

Location

Far right end of The Cove.  The only route on the adjacent right wall.   Starts on some giant dinosaur sized cobbles and works up to a steeper crux at mid height.  The upper third is easy but leads to nice views and pleasant climbing.

Protection

10 bolts, chains with steel biners
