Description:

Walk through the cave (watch hole in floor) to come out on a short ledge above a larger ledge, above the trail. Look straight up over the cave mouth. This is Anchors Away. Many folks like to stick clip the first bolt due to the potential fall and poor rock quality of the initial moves. Whichever, climb straight up past bolts on a fantastic 5.9+ face to reach anchors.

Descent Options:

Lower/rap from anchors.

4 out of 5 stars pretty fun

I've seen it called 9+, I think its closer to 9-. Regardless, fun climb. Did it on gear, and there's plenty of placements down low to prevent that nasty fall.

4 out of 5 stars Don't fall before the first bolt

Fun little climb, but I would recommend stick clipping the first bolt, so a tumble here doesn't drop you off the ledge.
