This is a well-bolted, super-fun climb. It's still a little dirty since it's a new route, so be careful!


It is the first route at the bottom of the knotted rope. It is left of Finding Forester.


Twelve bolts to a bolted anchor.

Great climb needs a little more cleaning. Safe to lead for the grade compared to the others at The Lemon.

Nice addition. Needs to be climbed more so it gets cleaned up.

Cleaned up pretty well now, much better than the top of FF to the right.

This climb has cleaned up very well and is very well bolted. It is a good lead for newbies becoming acquainted with the grade.

Two days ago I was lead climbing this route when I fell & hit my head & had to come down one or two bolts from the top to go to the hospital. I had to leave 9 quickdraws there (all red & silver), since I could not belay my partner up or climb up again to get them and nobody else was there. I went back the next day to see if they were still there, and they had been taken down. If anyone happens to have them, I would love to get them back if possible! Thank you :-)

Super fun climb in a beautiful setting. I retrieved a draw from this one probably a month back (sorry for just getting on here now). If you left it and can identify it, I'd be happy to get it back to ya.
