Fleafer getting lowered


A long, fun route with some tendency toward choss at the very top and in some off-route locations. Works with a 60m rope, but only just, so make sure to close your system.

There is a skeleton of an actual deer leg up there, hence the name. (The route went by Bambi's Last Leg for a time but reverted to its original name at the request of the originator.)


It's the bolt line starting up a corner to the left of Don't Have a Cow.


13 bolts, chain anchors.

If it's your first time to the Rough and Readies this is a good first climb. It gives you a variety of rock quality which I find representative of the area.
