Leading Steggo

Description 

A surprisingly nice route for the grade, Steggo is a good test for novice leaders to learn how to spot less-than-obvious placements for pro. It can also be set up as a toprope by scrambling up a gully on the left.

Start on the slabby face, moving up on easy ground with thin protection. End at a big tree on top of the wall.

Location 

The first climb down the trail from the parking lot, on a short, slabby wall.

Protection 

Small gear (nuts, tricams, cams); sling well as pro can zigzag. Anchor at the tree.

great route, my first outdoor TR, it does feel like a little more that 40 ft though.

Awesome for practicing gear placement. There are a few bomber spots that you kind of have to look for. I was able to sink a couple of nuts and make a really solid TCU placement. Excellent teacher.

Bought GORP passes online. With fees it was $6 per person, or you could buy a small group pass for $12.50. I got the group pass just to avoid creating a second user id for my partner.

Gate was open parking area was full with 5 cars in it. Parked in the ditch across the street. We scrambled right of the wall to reach top rope settings. Huge tree for primary anchor, then redirected around other trees to target specific routes. Second anchor was set up on a bolder, had to extend it out to reach over the edge.

I am surprised that there are not more named routes here. Facing the slab we climbed the boulders to the left, the arête, an unnamed crack to the right of the arête, Steggo, then a meandering smear to the right of Steggo.
