Sarah leading Earth Trip. Ferret's Folly is to he...

Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


This wall has a black streak flanked by two white streaks. The route follows three bolts to the left of these streaks.

The right-hand finish (5.9, FA: Ostrander, Oliver, 1988) is better, and is more direct.


Right below the large steel electrical tower.


Three bolts. Gear anchor at the top. There are bolt holes indicating the once-presence of bolts, but none now. I suppose many tie off to the tower above, but I think that is verboten.

There is a bolted anchor at the top of this route now. Right hand finish has a fun move, third bolt will be a ways below your feet though. Finishing left is much easier, if you do this I highly recommend lowering back to the third bolt and working that last section on TR.
