Awesome rock!

Description 

You better Believe it! As the easiest route on this face, it makes for a good warm up. The climbing is fairly steep, but with good balance and technique isn't too pumpy. Occasional in-cuts, a few jams, and descent feet keep it fun.

Location 

I believe that this is the 3rd bolt line left of Pratt's Crack (recommended, but if you only have draws slinging those chock stones might be a problem...) Follow the obvious weakness moving left or right of the crack as needed. Lower off, move to next line, repeat...

Protection 

8 draws, to 3 open shuts (well worn)

This was a great warm up route. With some options for pro, I was a bit disappointed that they weren't utilized and a couple less bolts placed. Of course I didn't take my rack though and place rather than clip, nor will I next time haha

Great line! Much harder and more sustained than Gala Tumble and p2 of Supergrinder.
