Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>


Start is first 25 feet of Bongs Away Left. Than continue another 25 feet of 25 degree left leaning off-width. OW transition from 6 inch to 3.5 inch . End of the climb is 7 feet horizontal underling to the anchors.


Approach by climbing Reed's Direct/Regular route to the big ledge.Everyone who rappel from reed's ledge did see this route. But the chain anchor somehow hidden and can not be seen from bottom of the climb. But they are solid.


Single from #6 to #1
