  • Description 

    This is on the far right side of this crag. It ascends a low angled, blunt arete. Its crux is probably right at the start.

    Hop aboard, scamper up past 5 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor (45') with Mussy hooks, ideally continue past another bolt to another 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.

    Others have provided a name, Nurse Jackie. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

    This is on the lean side of a star.

    Location 

    This is on the far right side of this crag.

    Protection 

    6-7 bolts.

    Not very exciting in any way, but I've found this to be a good route (and crag overall) to bring people for first sport leads.

    I wouldn't quite give it a bomb, but the little roof is the 5.5 move and after that it's done. But it's a great for new leaders.

    First bolt is placed in the perfect position for a crossloaded biner.

    Kind of dumb. The "crux" is in the first 10 feet.

    One of the better easy first leads I've found in the canyon.
