Description:

Although it is nicely runout to the first bolt (40'), it is well worth it and the climber is on very easy ground before the bolts. Above the first bolt, one will find a very enjoyable and aesthetic climb. Right of Fresh Start, easy start near tree at base of slab.

3 out of 5 stars Fun

Easy climb, but a bit nerve wracking until the first bolt. Hard to see from the ground, but it is the right of the two climbs on the slab right of the cave. Would be a great first lead but for the huge run-out to first bolt.
