  • Description 

    This is the second to left route at the Arena. Short and stout, this route would probably be 12a at the Sport Park.

    Anchor the belayer if you can, because there is some good fall potential clipping the second bolt. Or you can fall and hit your belayer in the head with quickdraws on your harness, like I did.

    Fun moves, from tiny crimps and balancy edges, past some jugs and a hard mantle to a long reach, then more jugs.

    Short and stout.

    Protection 

    Three quickdraws and a two-bolt anchor.

    Better be 5'10" or taller to keep it at the grade near the top. The long reach right could turn into a dyno for shorter folks.
