This route starts to the right of the flake on Chemistry Slab and follows that crack to the anchors on the left. Really easy and a good first trad lead.

Really chill trad route that would make for a great first lead on gear.

The anchors have steel sport biners for lowering (don't TR off these).

Hey Patrick, It's been a few years since I've been on this route, but last time I was up it the anchors were two sketchy-looking, rusty glue-ins. From what you said, it sounds like the anchors have been replaced and are bomber now?

Jesse, the anchor is indeed bomber.
