Description:

A fun pitch and good introduction to the River Wall slab routes. A low angled-slab gives way to a steeper crux in the headwall.

3 out of 5 stars fairly technical, for a warm up

crux is mostly going over bolt 2, and then the lie back at the top vertical section. Last bolt is very poorly placed since the natural line runs left and the last bolt is low and in the middle of a featureless slab section. I ended up clipping below my right foot. It's a 5.9 line, not a direct run to the anchors, which easily could have cut left with the line. What were you thinking, bolter?

I must have done something wrong because the first two bolts were the hardest for me....

4 out of 5 stars Great slab route

Very tricky crux with hidden holds along the way. May be 9+ or maybe it just seemed hard b/c it was cold. Good route nonetheless. Just wish it was longer.
