BETA PHOTO: At 2 bolt rap anchor


Start at the two bolt anchor of P.1 of Caveat Emptor. Climb straight up the well protected, coarse, immaculate, and steepening wall on small crimps and one finger pockets. Crux is passing the 3rd and 4th bolts to a mantle and a rest. Continue on easier rock passing another bolt.


The approach trail brings you to the left edge of the cliff and the start of the route Caveat Emptor.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt rap anchor

This felt unreasonably hard for 5.11. Could have been the lichen on the slab though. I pulled through on the bolts.

Ah, like Jon says of Mt Oscar (in The Notches): "Expect hard ratings" (!)
