BETA PHOTO: Brass Tacks area, as I understand it.
This popular route lies just downstream from the lead climb only area between the bridges, but well above the three pipelines that cross the gorge. This 120 foot classic, sustained line can be viewed in its entirety from the upper bridge and from the lookout platform on the east side. A fun and often tiring toprope workout with numerous variations. Very photogenic.
This route is usually toproped.
Anchor off medium sized tree at top of route. This can be backed up using the large bent iron rod 25 feet uphill.

If you are so unfortunate as to get lowered down Brass Tacks R and knock off the bottom 10 feet of the curtain, do not despair. You can climb out either by walking upstream & doing Brass Tacks L or mixing it up on the E side at S5 (snow + rock 5) to a ledge and then stemming out to the curtain. It does not require excessive physical flexibility.
