Climb up jugs to a first crux stepping left over a bulge. Climb the slab to a second crux in a water runnel with really cool tufas to the chains.


This route is currently the farthest route right on this slab area.

This would be a great first lead for someone who’s new to leading. Easy, slabby climb to a straightforward crux. If Beginner’s Luck at the Training Grounds is a 5.6, this would be a 5.5.
