***Climbers MUST NOT climb at GFNP without a daily permit per person in each group.***
This route is privately owned and requires
a daily per-user permit obtained from the Graining Fork Nature Preserve website.
This isn't about just you getting away with climbing for a day without a permit--this is about the climbing community respecting private land to ensure continued access privileges. Don't be selfish--get a permit.
Climb a highly featured and polished slab to a more vertical highly featured and polished face.
The crux is a matter of balance and the rest of the climb is much easier.
This route used to have the distinction of being the easiest bolted route in the RRG, but this is no longer true. You might call it the most climbed route in the Red, as it had many years of beginner climbers on it before the easier routes were developed.
Despite all that, it is a fun and worthy route.
Walk all the way to the right end of the wall. This is the next to last bolted route on the wall, just left of a right facing flake.
Bolts, bolts anchors.

We did this route and it was fun and well worth doing. I think the first part is really fun slab.. It ends with chains and quick links.

Scary route for a new leader. I would not project this route as my first lead, a fall would be punishing!

I'm a bit on the short side (5'5") and couldn't quite reach the 4th bolt from the good ledge. As my first lead (and climb at all) in a long while, it was definitely a bit exciting!
