Maybe the best route on this section of the wall; a thin section down low leads to pockets and jugs up higher. Great route that is not to be missed.


5 feet right of "Walk in the Park" and the center route on this section of the wall. Look for the bolts and you can't miss it.


Well protected sport route with 6 bolts to fixed anchors and your rappel.

BEES! On the ledge below the anchors. They were some kind of wasps and got real excited when we did this route though they didn't sting, just flew all around. The nest is in a hole/pocket right on the ledge less than a foot from your head when you come up over it.

The first bolt on this one seemed to be in a really weird place. when i got to a comfy spot to clip it, i was already getting close to the second.

also, all three of the routes on this wall are starting to show rust streaks from the bolts. They all seemed fine, but worth noting.

The left top anchor hook is missing its gate now as of 6/7/2017. Also showing sign of rust through all of the hardware. Might be time to replace hardware?
