getting ready to Battle T-Rex

Description 

Super fun climb. Very interesting start. The crux is 3/4 of the way up when you find yourself in a diehdral.Staying in the diehdral through the top is the crux, however you can move right to easier face climbing. After you leave corner much easier climbing to a great finish. Great exposure!

Location 

This route is a second pitch climb off the right side of the belay ledge. You gain access by either climbing NoBoma or Get Wet.

One of my new favorites, just watch for local kids throwing rocks off the legde above the anchors. It's becoming a popular activity these days.

great climb! very long route as well.

9 bolts + anchors with rap rings (not counting the few bolts with slings on them)

a 70 meter would allow a single repel if you were careful not to land in the water.

This is still a new climb with lots of lose holds so make sure you are delicate and your belayer is wearing there helmet.

I loved this route but the quality of the rock on this route is so unnerving... It's fortunately quite well bolted.
