Comments: Love the climb. Not sure where you'd need a double knee bar though.... I guess you could in the big crack right below the last two bolts, but you certainly don't NEED too. This route, it seems, has been bolted since this was posted. 7 bolts to anchors. Crimpy start for sure, then a good haul. The addition of all that pro might take the grade down a notch, but I did top rope it.... Make sure to look around at the top! Great views!

Comments: Does anyone know what this route to the right of early start is? It's unfinished for sure.... Top out and there is nowhere to go. Also, the first bolt is in the dead tree? What the hell?

Comments: "Right of Plumber's Crack" isn't super helpful since there aren't a ton of photos or any bolts on Plumber's. Short and sweet route. The bolts are hard to see unless you are right on them, because they are painted.
Take your own anchor if setting up a top rope. Whoever did the janky job at the top here left an ADT that looks sketchy.

Comments: Nice easy climb. There are anchors at the top for an easy top rope. Climb the continuous crack or bust it straight up for a little more challenge. Little moist early season but not wet.

Comments: Great fun route, solid feet and hands the whole way up. There are 2 sets of anchors for this route it seems, with the lower ones you can see from the bottom being the old ones. Those are kinda janky, I'd trust the newer looking ones about 10 feet from the ledge. Bring about 20-30 feet of anchor material though if you don't want the rope rubbing the rocks. Leading this is real heady, if you fall between the first and second bolts, you will deck. A little dirty, but I think we might have been some... more >>
