The most obvious climb as you pop out of the trail to the rock face. Great first sport lead as it is rather safe for the highway. Bring slings for the anchor as it is just two bolts.


Just right of the corner of the formation.


5 bolts to a two bolt chain anchor.

And it has chains on the anchor. As of 4.13.14. The other two sets of anchors do not. So rap from here, or walk off.

Nut on the first bolt was backed off to the last thread of the bolt yesterday. ; bolt 3 isn't the healthiest looking either. A super pleasant lead--just wished it was another 40 feet longer.
