BETA PHOTO: The lower slab at Breakneck

Description 

Appears to be run out at first glance but well protected.

While this route, like its next-door neighbor (Touch of Green, 5.6), is not especially interesting to climb, the view from the anchors is the best at Breakneck. (And they're the only ones that get consistent sun!) Oh, and the evenly dispersed array of small pockets make Cannabis, like Eclipse (5.6), a less height-dependent route than most of the problems on the Main & Right walls and thus a similarly good choice for a first lead attempt by novice sport climbers (especially on a busy day when the upper area is mobbed).


Location 

#13 on topo


Protection 

3 bolts, ring shuts at the top.

Better than it sounds. In need of a facelift. New solid ring anchors and hardware will be replacing the single cold shut currently on top. A good climb for the beginning leader.

This climb now has 3 bolts instead of 2 and also now has ring shuts at the top.
