Description:

This route begins on a narrow ledge about 10 feet above the ground. A small metal plaque on the rock marks it's beginning with its title "Broken Bolt" engraved in it. It's a good idea for the belayer to build an anchor with a few cams in a nice crack right beside plaque. The first bolt is really high from the ground, but is easily clipped by gaining a small rock tower just to the right of the start.

3 out of 5 stars A decent challenge

Fun route with a few challenging moves (for me at least). I'd definitely climb this again.

3 out of 5 stars Daunting first clip

Fun to work out in upper section. Good holds through middle. Look forward to tackling again.
