Description:

Climb the crack next to Route 1 described above. Note: The crux of this climb is the start, so make sure you are rock solid in the grade before trying, because a fall at the start means a sprained ankle, unless you are on TR. So, all the pro on this climb consists of nuts, no cams needed (belay cam optional--see below). Follow the crack up through a ceiling and reach a bolted belay on the ceiling. Two rap hangers are solid, you can back it up with a large cam in a crack to the right of the bolts. The second pitch is revolting--rap off to the ground....

3 out of 5 stars Route 2

The start was tricky, because the only good spots to be used for hand hold s are riddled with dirt, vegetation, and loose rock. Which is fairly frustrating, and for me, makes the route a no-go. Or in this case, a no re-do.

Lots of dirt, some shrubbery and no fun. Plus, the rock at Stover is just poor.

3 out of 5 stars -

Led it. Start is about 5.6. The rest of the climb is rather easy. Hardest part is getting onto the ledge when full of grass.
