One of my climbing partners sending this. Good war...



A fun line that can be done a number of ways to get to the first bolt. Campus, boulder, move in from the left, or for the full value original start jump to the start hold right of the first bolt. Lots of good jugs with a balancey section getting past the last bolt to the anchor. A great route to do at the end of the day.


Located on the right side of the Impact Zone. Just left of a really steep section of rock that appears to house a route with a project on it since the first two bolt hangers are still missing.


3 bolts plus ring anchors.

3 bolts, not 4.

A good first lead for someone new to sport. I would advise additional protection to the first bolt (stick clip, crashpad, or close spotting) due to the uneven ground.
