First Offense 

This route starts under the oak tree just left of 3 to Get Ready & Fat Man and has 4 bolts. The bottom two bolts have been replaced. The upper portion is a bit runout, but features some great climbing on solid, clean, rock. NOTE - the beta photo shows 3 bolts, but there are really 4. Refer to the black & white topo. I was unable to find any pro, but there may be some spots to work in small nuts or cams.


4 draws plus (maybe) small cams & nuts.
