Description:

Easy lead for this level. The last bolt is under the roof which plays head games with you if that's close to your limit - best part of the climb in my opinion. Bolted easier variation to the right too. *6/23/07* The fourth bolt is missing a hanger leading to a potential ground-fall on the runout. It is possible to clip the two bolts to the right with long runners.

4 out of 5 stars Good fun climb

I enjoy this climb. Popular though, sometimes hard to get on.
pretty easy with a couple tricky moves at the top, hard enough to probably earn it a 5.9... maybe.

2 out of 5 stars Good route for intermediate climbers

Fun climb. My favorite part is the overhang. I gave it a G safety rating because I top rope it. Most of the climb is pretty easy, but it has a few challenging parts.

4 out of 5 stars Missing some bolts

After getting onsite and after looking we could see the missing anchor the bolt is still in the rock sitcking out about 1/2 inch I decided not to risk the fall. I Lead this climb following the bolts to the right big strech between the 3rd and 4th bolt could not find where a something had been removed but continued on at the 3rd bolt there is a nice hump to make it over. If you decide not to place protection between the 3rd and 4th bolt there is a chance of a long fall possilbe fast hard stop at the ground . It is a nice little climb between the 4th and 5th bolt closer to the 5.9 rating on this wall. Once at the 5th bolt you basicly miss the over hang. Once toproped you can spend all day on this nice little overhang, the rest of the wall I would say is closer to a 5.7 but you can spend some time on the little stuff and make it what you want. There is a killer spot to hand out at the base on top of the little 10 foot ledge.
