A moderate clip up in a scenic area with a fun dihedral/ arete finish. See photo on the front of the Bradley Falls page


descend the fixed line, then walk 100 feet away from the waterfall, locating the obvious line of bolts. Note: it is the second buttress away from the fixed line.


A ridiculous amount of bolts

Fun route. Definitelytoo many bolts but you can skip a few if you dont wanna bring a rack of 15 draws.
FYI a loose block is up top as you pull the last move., it has been dusted with white chalk. If it does fall it will be very dangerous. Be careful on this route for that reason. Last 30 feet are the best.

It is a good route, fun stemming in the dihedrals. I checked the loose block at the top, tried to pull it off, although it moved, it didn't break loose. Non-the-less definitely be careful. It's high up on the arete on the most direct path to anchors, you can go below and right of it pretty easily though. I'd do a double check on most holds before weighting them here at Bradley.

Fun warm-up climb. Skip some of the bolts to avoid too much rope drag.
