Description:

Wire Tap is a moderate, varied climb. The route has plenty of pure crack climbing, but a little bit face and slab thrown in for good variety. Cruxes are short; the route is well-protected. All belays are fixed (bolts).

Descent Options:

Four 30m rappels straight back down the climb. A 70m rope is recommended as one rappel is truly 30m long.

Hardly an on-sight given that I had cleaned out every crack... But neat to experience the route as a climber, after so much time with it as a cleaner.
