Beautiful wildlife


Intro to Safe Harbor 101. Starts on broken rock, then moves up slabs broken by tiny ledges.


The route setter placed 4 bolts. It also takes some of the best trad protection at Safe Harbor.

This can be lead on gear and makes a good intro for those looking to transition from sport to trad.

It's a great beginner route. I've taken several friends here to do their first sport lead, and i did my first trad lead here. it's probably one of the few climbs at SH that can be lead on just trad. Everything else is too slabby.

As of January 2016, the third bolt has been replaced with a U-bolt/epoxy style.

I also concur about leading this short but fun climb. It can be done mixing bolts and gear then gear alone as well. its good practice for placing hexes down low, a few good nuts relatively low, and a few spots that take good gear next not-so-good gear placements making good decision-making practice too. I believe Ive gotten 10 pieces in when practicing placing gear.
