Description:

Chimney/crack route right of Detention and Africa. Right in the middle of the most popular part of the cliff (you'll notice very little vegetation anywhere near the base of this section). Big holds and the comfort of being in a chimney make this a popular route for folks starting out, and for a first trad lead climb. All big stuff and slings, finishes on big horns; rap off Detention's chain anchors, or take the walk off, left, to the access scramble back to the base.

5 out of 5 stars Easy, Fun

This was my first ascent ever. After becoming frustrated with the finishing moves of Africa I moved down and blew of some steam and finished this one out with little difficulty.

3 out of 5 stars Good for the newbe

I took 13 new climbers out this past Saturday, most of them for their first time. This was a good route to start them out on and most of them flew right up enjoying themselves.

3 out of 5 stars Fun First Trad Climb

Route was fun, and was an easy first lead on gear. Wouldn't climb again though.
