FA of Feeding the Rat.


The route starts off climbing face holds on questionable rock for 10ft to gain a beautiful sustained finger crack. This short and stout route climbs mostly fingers with a few face holds throughout to the obvious ledge at 50ft. Feeding the Rat shares the same anchor as Alien Umbrella.


Feeding the Rat is on the left side of the main face (left of Kraken). Both the Alien and the Rat share the same opening moves on friable edges and flakes.


Standard rack to 1". Two bolts protect the face getting into the finger size crack above.

Stout is right! The bolts should protect leaders on the friable/questionable rock. A bit more cleaning and traffic will take care of it, but for now, it may be a good idea to stick-clip.
