Finishing up Choir Boy


This climb begins the same as Chorus Line, only it climbs the 1st bolted line after the rightward traverse. Not a hard climb, just a bouldery beginning.


2 bolts for anchors, and 6 draws. Rappell off.

Bolt #3 (shared with Chorus line) is a spinner.

Shares the same route as Chorus Line until bolt #3. Above the initial 12 feet, the climbing is fairly easy, but run out. Very positive feet, with no hands rests available all the way to the anchors.

Not as fun as Chorus Line. Good first lead, hard beginning to chill upper face. Dont get bogged down at the roof, go for the numerous chalked JUGGYS.

The jug near the first bolt is very lose and needs to be removed. Be aware of this loose hold, as it's commonly used to clip the first bolt. Couldn't remove it by hand, will need to bring up a small prybar or something similar the next time I'm up there.
