Gobs of Knobs

Description 

This climb is on the lower angle face covered in large knobs. The route follows the line of least resistance to a chain anchor. This makes a great top rope for beginning climbers as well as a good opportunity for new leaders. An optional second pitch exists:(5.1R) Step across, clip a bolt, and scamper up the rounded ridge to the next anchors (shared with Wave Runner), reached by walking on a sloping ledge, not going to the very top. Rap down Wave Runner.

Location 

This is one of the first climbs one arrives at on the southern end of the third area and is located on "Beside the Point". It faces west.

Protection 

Pitch one: 3 bolts
Pitch two: 1 bolt
Both end at chain anchors
