Description:

Start 10m (33') left of Arachnophobia, directly behind a big tree on the middle line of bolts on this face. Climb the obvious crack in the face, tending left to a ledge after about 10m (33'). Face climb to the right of this crack to the anchors at the top. An excellent, closely bolted route for a first sport climb.

Descent Options:

Rappel off the anchors.

At the time of this ascent, the route wasn't bolted. The only options were to climb it as a poorly protected trad climb or top rope it (no longer an option since the top of the cliff is closed due to access issues). I would love to get back and lead it now that it is bolted..

5 out of 5 stars My first lead!

This was my first lead climb, and was an awesome route for learning to sport lead. The clips are all quite close together (10 bolts for an 80'/25m route), so you're never run out very far, and the climbing is easy, but fun.
