I don't remember any real crux, just thoughtful laybacking and stemming. It is a pretty fun warm-up. It is still a little dirty, but if you feel around, you'll find plenty of cleaned jugs....


This is NOW the 2nd route from the left. In between Boyz From the Hood and Merry Men.


Bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

That big, fragile flake left of the 5th bolt was cleaned off today with the slightest tug and exploded below thanks to Dave. Yeow! There are still a couple of big, mobile chunks just below the anchor that could take out a belayer. Beware.

My partner trundled the boulders near the anchor today. It's still got lichen in some of the places you need to smear, but it's getting cleaner and is worth getting on. It's good to have a few warmups before sending Prince of Thieves.

FYI, one of the anchor bolts is missing. We used Merry Men's anchor--no problem traversing with the wide ledge.

Strange, I posted on July 6, 2012 that I replaced the missing anchor mentioned above. That comment has vanished, but it is still on my personal page.

Greg, it is possible that you posted it as a condition report? If so, those disappear after some time.

I'm just barely giving this two stars, and that's really only for the "boulder problem" to the first bolt. We also didn't notice any loose rock, and the moves between the 5th and 6th bolt were thought provoking. Certainly merits more than a star, but it wasn't particularly memorable. Worth doing if you're in the area and nobody's on it.

All that said, it's probably a pretty good first 5.10 lead.
