Left-most route. The holds are huge and closely spaced. A fun game to play is to climb on only 'natural' features to the first ledge.

Toprope TIP: Keep the rope snug at the start of all routes. A fall low on the wall can result in tagging the floor if the belayer doesn't account for rope stretch. Keep TR snug when climber is at the roof above the belay ledge.

Can be lead but typically done on top rope. This route has a belay ledge for practicing multi-pitch climbing.

This route as well as the next one to the right is often used for training Around the corner is a small setup for training lead climbing students how to clean anchors.


Route is furthest to the left on the wall.
