  • Description 

    This is a short TR problem on the far R side of the Redgarden Wall. There is a short, overhanging wall near a big tree nearly just across from the start to Wind Ridge.

    Best to scramble (be careful) around and set up a TR. Used a #2, #2 1/2, #3, #4 Friends with some 4 foot slings.

    Have fun pulling and yarding on this steep little route. Long throws.

    There is also a fun overhanging crack to the L, Balance of Terror, 5.9 (stiff).

    Addendum: The posted rating was derived from R. Rossiter's fine S. Boulder Climbs guidebook. Having not the immense experience of climbing, I didn't challenge the rating. Addendum: okay, I've change the rating given the feedback.


    Trick question, eh? Okay, there are a few spots for pro.

    There's actually a few spots you can get pretty good gear in. A #1 BD cam fits perfectly halfway up, then a few feet above that, you can get a #2 that protects the moves over the lip. It's just a little sketchy until you get that 1st piece in. It's a pretty fun, although really short, route.

    Stiff little climb. Worth doing though. Take only a few pieces protects great at the lip. Short but sweet!
