Safety Ledge

Description 

Safety ledge follows a right facing corner. This route is usually wet but when the conditions are right this is a great warm up for the area. It ends at the anchors above the ledge.

Location 

Safety Ledge is right of Lightning Crack. Both routes share the same start.

Protection 

This route was originally established as 5.9X in the mid to late 80's. It is now equipped with 5 lead bolts to anchors. Thanks to the first ascent party approval.

This is a very funky corner. I used some pretty wild stemming beta at the crux.

As Jordan mentioned, funky stemming is key at the crux. There's a lack of hand holds near the top so I had to rely mostly on friction to make it up.

Felt harder then a 5.9 at first, but once I found the hold placements, this was a solid warm-up route!
