This is the easiest sport route at this crag. Climb a dirty, right- facing corner to dirty slab climbing above.


Belay from a tree up at the top of the gully on the left side of the Central Buttress.


It is over-protected with 4 or 5 bolts & anchors so that even the greenest of leaders will feel comfortable. Gear placements are available for practice as well.

Is this that crazy long slab climb to the right of Panda? This thing is cool. It's pretty hard at the bottom. Very very thin and puckery start!!

Russ, the climb you are speaking of is #19 on the Mormon Hollow page. It is super fun with a thin thin thin start. This climb is closer to Original Sin and is on the left side of a dirty face. It has quite a few bolts and is probably the easiest and safest (can plug gear between bolts if desired) lead at Mormon.
