Reaching for the jug. The three bolts are 6-7 fee...


Right most line on the block. BIG jugs lead to a few smaller holds and then a fun run to the chains. Look for a big jug to the left of the chains to clip from.

One of the best easy lines in all of the limestone.

There is a fun dyno option on this route. From the first big jug (or second) do a good jump to another huge jug up and on the left.


3 bolts and chains

This is the only route in the area I've done more than once. Takes roughly 2 seconds to climb. There aren't many limestone routes in the canyon that are this easy. This route is just plain fun. A microclassic that is great for beginners.

Really fun route. Some one commented that it was a little runout to the anchors but I don't know. It's such an easy jaunt up to the chains from the last bolt that I really wouldn't worry about it. Lots of fun.

Nice little climb to start on and get your feet wet. Big juggy holds and easy moves. Good one to learn to lead on.
