Description 

From the top, one can top rope several lines that vary in difficulty from 5.8 to 5.11. The line directly under the anchors goes as 10a or so, a little harder left of this going thru the bulge. There is a lot of lichen that will go away with some climbing. This has Monastery-type crystals and funky slanty holds. There were two anchor bolts here with the hangers missing. It was obviously climbed before. I almost just put two new hangers on the old bolts, but instead I decided to drill new ones. I'm glad I did. When I went to hammer off the old bolt ends, they broke in about 5 swings of the ole Black Diamond hammer. There are other missing hangers on bolts in the area, so beware if you plan to add hangers to them.

Location 

This is about 1/3 to 1/2 way up the east side down hill from Chicken Head Hop and Climbing for Dummies.

Protection 

Top rope- sling and biners off of two bolt anchor.
