Description:

At the bottom of the long face is a boulder that is connected to the face. Begin to the left of this boulder. The route will take almost all of a 50m rope if you climb to the top. There are a pair of anchor bolts halfway up, but don't settle. Go to the top. Use two ropes on the rap chains to rap down the Center route.

3 out of 5 stars Swearing on a 5.5?

Compared to other low grade Panicles climbs this one is a bit stiff for the rating. Not a great first lead climb - unless you're trying to scare the sh*t out of someone. My guess is that it's an older route that if it were put up recently would get a 5.6 R. Fun though. Wearing helmet may boost confidence.

5 out of 5 stars Great View

Nice climbing to practice "multi pitch" climbing. Bring you're belayer up to the mid anchors so they can see you and enjoy the route. Way runout, but easy.

4 out of 5 stars Great view

Way run out. Not the best choice for a first lead. With ML

4 out of 5 stars Good route for absolute beginners to follow

The route is a little run-out on lead, but easy. The view on top is nice. Frequently swifts and other birds will zip by. There is a belay station midway so one 60m rope is sufficient to rap down.
