Damn wires!


This would make a great lead for the beginner trad leader, or a really good toprope for novice climbers. This route is the crack that starts out of the hole in the base of the wall.


Center of the wall. Starting from the top of the hole.


Take a standard rack. Two-bolt anchor at top.

I would say the wire makes that section more like a 5.6. Leading that section is interesting since if you fall onto the wire you could easily get flipped over.

I second the motion that this route is more of a 5.6. Fun little route for beginners.

Unlike some of the other routes the wire kind of ruins this climb. Makes the crux twice as difficult as it should be.

This route was incredibly greasy.
