Top Rope Top Rope ascent by: chugar on 2009-04-25 (View Climbing Log)

2 out of 5 stars Last climb of the day.

There must have been 30-40 at Cosumnes this day. Set one TR on Test Piece. We used other's ropes and must have climbed 5-6 other TRs. Finished the day on this route b/c no one was here. IMO, probably a 5.7 or easy 5.8. Two anchor bolts were present. One 4' sling just made it - 6' would have been perfect. Nice climb to finish the day off if you are climbing with new climbers. Not a good climb if you wanted to end with a 5.9.

2 out of 5 stars fun climb/ horrible anchors at top!

I couldn't find the bolts at the top (i've seen them before) but they might have been removed. so otherwise there's NO anchor at the top. Nothing. so unless you lead it and down clean, freesolo is the only way.
