Description

This backside route faces NW and gently overhangs. The first couple bolts are somewhat close in proximity to the opposing wall such that one could reduce the difficulty of the route by a letter grade by stemming off it. By doing so, you can eliminate some of the challenge, the possibility of colliding with it, and dealing with the somewhat slippery yellow lichen that infests the first half of the route (your choice.) From bolts 2-3 is a crux-ish section that on lead feels a tiny bit lead (tho, good luck clipping a bolt that could have been placed in between- this would really be a challenge to clip), but, at least ones feet feel a little more secure.The climb eases toward the anchors. The back wall, shortness of the line, the somewhat sporty section, and the slippery start detract from a route that "could" have possibly been 2 stars. Note: one can easily set up a top rope on this route by doing one of the east facing routes and walking across the top of the rock to the anchors on top of this one.
