Description:

If you've taken the trail up to where there are logs for steps at the base of the cliff, you've gone to far. Go back down the cliff till you see an open area of ground right next to the cliff. 7-9' up the cliff is a ledge system that one could almost stand on without the use of arms. This is where the first bolt is. The route is definately rated R. But is easy for the grade. You'll have lots of time at each position to look for the next good hold. Just take your time.

3 out of 5 stars actually meant to do the 5.5!

Since you really can't see the bolts for the 5.5 route, I figured this was it, so I lead it by accident. It really wasn't that hard but it has ground fall potential even before the bulge. I used the third bolt for the 5.5 route just to get over the bulge (it doesn't make it harder except there's more rope drag).
