Description:

Around the corner from "Green Monster" this is the first route you come to on the left. Not a favorite for the locals due to bad bolt placements and easy grade, good for beginners on lead, hangers at top.

FA: John Stalmist --The day after John put up this route he was deployed to Afghanistan with the Army.

Crux is first bolt, jug city the rest of the way. Work your way left then traverse back right to the first bolt for a slightly crimpy start.

Crux is first bolt, all jugs after that. More fun to work the corner to first bolt

I liked this route--easy fun. I'd reccomend it to any novice looking to get on some rock. It took me one try--I took my time as well. The crux was the first move or two--an interesting start to get off the ground. This was my first lead route. I'm fairly new to climbing and this was exciting for me as I used this route to teach myself how to lead climb. An added rush for me despite the low grade.
