Sarah approaching the crux on First First.


First First is a trad route with one bolt at the crux where the crack turns to crap. This bolt as well as the three bolt anchor were placed on lead with a hand drill. Black Bunny Rabbit shares an anchor with this route. This route protects well with gear, but almost no crack technique is required as it’s mostly face climbing and easy chimney. Watch out for the cactus.


It goes up the corner between 84.1% Eclipse of the Heart and Black Bunny Rabbit.


One bolt and cams 0.3-#4 BD. A #6 is useful but not necessary.

Looks like the bolt is useful but not necessary?

I would agree if the fall was a little cleaner.
