Description:

This easy, over bolted climb will have you z-clipping, and reaching down to pick up quickdraws and move them up! A good, safe first lead.

4 out of 5 stars definitely 14

Climbed as lead, slab, belaying-from-above, and rap practice for experienced gym climbers. Lots of fun, and can be made harder if you opt for the friction moves to the left of the bolt line on the top half. Definitely 14 bolts, we took 15 draws up and had one left when we reached the rap rings. The overbolting is for good cause: it keeps lead falls very short. The rock has a somewhat cheesegrater character, so the shorter your slide down it the fewer the bandages you need! The upside is that you can do solid friction moves. The pitch is about 32m; a 60m rope is fine, but tie a stopper knot when you rap off because your rappel will end about 2-3m above the trail. Easy down-scramble from there though. Great view.
