Right side of River Bend. Southside climbs the gre...

Description 

Climb above the ledge using somewhat hard to find crimps and underclings to a good pocket at the 2nd bolt. Figure out the body tension and positioning to work through the next series of pinches, sidepulls, and smeared feet to a good jug at the 4th bolt (clip the 3rd bolt from a tenuous stance along the way). From here the climb eases a little and you can find a good rest in the small cave.

The upper portion of the climb stays wet (or muddy) for a while after a rain.

Location 

Right side of Riverbend area. Starts on a ledge 15 feet up from the river, climb up just left of the bonsai-like tree and traverse left onto the ledge. Of the routes that start on this ledge, Southside is the 2nd route from the left.

Protection 

7 fixed chains to 2-bolt drop-in anchor. Anchor bolt for belayer on the ledge.
