Description:

Start at the bulge by manteling and moving up a bulgy face with good pockets and edges. Crux of the climb is at the top, where you must mantel again. Right of Sappy Love Song.

4 out of 5 stars Good lead starter route

Did it twice, the bulge at the top was an interesting problem.

4 out of 5 stars Christmas Chocolate

Very fun route with many options for hands and feet. Easy, comfortable lead. Filled with no hands rests to warm up slowly on.

4 out of 5 stars Cool Warm Up

Solid rock with great hands and feet. Well protected and lots of little ledges to rest on so you pump slowly for warming up. Crux is near the top bolt - mantle works well but is not necessary. Don't make it harder on yourself and stay to the right more at the crux.
I love Pond rock!!!
