This is a fun, moderate route with new bolts. It starts out as mostly a face climb then climbs up a short right-facing dihedral at the top. Getting "over" the corner of the dihedral is probably the crux, but it's easier than it looks. It is well worth the climb if you enjoy moderate sport climbs.


Well, this is on the climber's left side -- about 60 feet left of The Army Route. It can be identified by two bolts on the left wall of the short, right-facing dihedral at the top of the route.


Sport climb -- about 5 or 6 bolts to two cold-shut anchors at the top just above the corner of the small "roof"

The route is named "Kendlee" after Bob Robertson's granddaughter.

Bob Robertson thought this might be a 5.8. I'm going to stick with that. An enjoyable route but short, only five draws.

Not sure what happened with the anchors on this route. Friends who climbed Kendlee semi-recently said they didn't see cold shuts and the anchors were not great.

I climbed it for the first time yesterday and, after hearing their description, was surprised to see new chains and rings.

Thank you to whoever put up the new bolts/chains/rings.

Anchors are set back a bit after you turn onto the arete. To avoid rope drag and biner on rock, you will want some longer cordelette to get it out and into the air (but then on TR you can't pull the last move).
