When you face the Red Wall, you will notice two distinct tiers - a lower panel and an upper panel. The majority of the routes are on the upper panel. There is an easy way to get up there off to the right side (5.2 with a couple of bolts), or you can take one of three lines on the lower panel to get up there.

When you look at the lower panel, you will see three routes. Begin Again is the leftmost of the three. It is an ok route - it has a cool roof, but suffers from the crux holds also being quite sharp.


7 bolts.

I think this route deserves some more starage. The lower crux is balancy and really smooth. The upper crux put me deep in the roof with my leg staddling (not touching) the corner. I felt one sharp hold on the corner. Is that the detracting feature? If so, then I don't think it's that bad. Maybe I'm outta whack on the crux?
