This is great route for beginners. There is an easy start to some moves that may will make a 5.6 - 5.7 climber think. This climb has large flakes and even some cracks.


This is the leftmost climb on Bob's Rock.


3 bolts at the top as anchors.

Took some beginners here, it's a nice starter run for some top ropers. The furthest out anchor is crap it's stamped with "RP" and looks placed wrong, the other two are bomber.

Someone bolted the 5.6 TR slab??

According to Kip Davis, it looks like they stripped some other routes to get hangers for it. Nice.

Rob, don't think so. Looks like all new HW.

Nice work to someone for bolting a route that is safely leadable on gear or God forbid top roped as it has been done for quite a while.

There's another line that's been bolted just left of this one. Grade seems about the same and they share the anchors, which could use a replacement. Of the three the one on the right is the best, and it doesn't have a quicklink. The one in the middle has the bolt sticking way out of the rock and the left bolt has a dodgy hanger.

Just climbed this route. Any reason why there are not rap rings on the anchors at top? Does anyone have a problem if I add some rap rings?
