Simon on p1 of Prelude


Plain 5.8 with 2 cruxes: bouldery start and another bouldery move half-way up. The key hold moves on the bouldery start, otherwise solid rock. Fun moves between ledges. Good rests.


It's the right of two ramps, left of white, freshly fallen wall (with zigzag'ing roof). If you walk away from the cliff you can spot one bolt high on the ramp. Rappel (longer than 100 ft) or continue on 5.6.


Bouldery start can be protected with #1 RP. The second crux feels better protected with #2 RP (or maybe #3).

Linking with Overture makes for a fantastic 5.8 climb, one of the best in the park.
