Description:

Climb up to the ledge above the pool. Move right and clip the bolt that is furthest to the right. Move up to a crack where it is possible to place some good protection. Move right around the corner past one more bolt and a horizontal crack. Rap off. (This good route is often confused with the over bolted one to the left. This route is somewhat runout but protection is good where you can find it. If you think you did this route and clipped more than two bolts than you probably have done Safe Pool.)

5 out of 5 stars What a fun start!

Loved the start and the climbing to the first ledge. The climbing after that is fun too. This is a great climb with lots of little pockets and edges.

5 out of 5 stars Really fun, superb scene

I wish I would have lead this instead of topping it from Safe Pool. The start looked way harder than it was, and I just wasn't on my game today. I will lead it next time. But no bother because it's just an amazing place to be, right above the pond. This climb was SUPER fun, lots of options, pretty sustained. There must be new bolts, because this was bolted really well. Just be careful not to pull your rope through into the water.
