  • Description 

    This route is the route on the lower face of 'The Blonde Formation'. The routes in general are avoided because of the proximity to the road, very close. This route is fairly straightforward but the grade is heightened a little bit due to the lichen covered rock, don't blindy throw for something that looks good on this crag, will be covered for sure.. I would give this route more stars if it weren't so close to the traffic. Watch when approaching the base of this route for rocks rolling onto the road. Be careful and enjoy, bring a brush....

    I did this route with Dawn Packard. Sorry about the dirty rock; we did clean it at the time. Bret and I also did a route just around the corner on an hourglass shaped formation. This is called Skinny Legs and All (12) and would add to the roadside collection. -Fred K
