This has a highball start; the crux is at the third bolt.


It is right next to the pool.


7? draws.

Slick limestone. All moves very doable, but sustained the whole way. Great route, with beautiful setting.

7 bolts. I thought the crux was getting to the 6th bolt.

If you need to build up a starting block to get passed the first moves of this climb, idk. Pick a easier line, weeny.

This route really doesn't need bright, ugly chains on it. If you are going to put chain on a route, at least do it properly. Paint the chains a neutral color, and use the correct number of links.

I vote to remove them. This isn't the Golf Wall!

Absolutely stellar climb with great movement (underclings, lockoffs, high feet, knee scums). The setting doesn't get better! I think this route is definitely in the 12- range, but apparently the entire cliff is sandbagged. Definitely get on this!

Dynamic movement on incut holds, a gently overhung arete, and a rumbling waterfall. I think this route is real special.
