Cheers guys! (Found at the base of the fixed rope...


For some this course may not be theoretical. Start by climbing on or near an obvious arête. Follow the bolt line above, using good cams to protect between the third and fourth bolts, to the final problem and chains. Expect some new-route choss -- consider a helmet for the belayer. Steep!


See the approach for Basic Aeronautics. From the flat area under the cedar tree, walk right out the ledge, past the start for Basic Aeronautics, for maybe 30 feet to the starting arête. A decent belay can be arranged on the road-facing side of a gendarme-like protrusion under the arête.


Draws and a few cams from fingers to 1 1/2 inches. Rap/lower from chains.
