4 out of 5 stars French Route

One of my favorite routes in this area due to the features and the reasonable bolt spacing on the first "pitch". Maybe a small cam before you get into the undercling feature. Onsighted this on TR.

4 out of 5 stars loved this climb

but it is long long way to the anchors at the top of the wall!!! i used a yellow alien before the first bolt and then a 0.75 and a 1 camalot for the horizontal crack about halfway up the long easy slab. the very top part felt dangerous to me because it was very dirty with a lot of lichen.
