|Dam - Back Side
Incredible route that is usually top-roped. Beginning moves require balance and great feet. At about the 20 ft. point, the jugs appear and you can cruise. Anchors are shared with Pieces of Eight.
The beautiful face immediately right of Pieces of Eight.
2 bolts. First bolt is at 30 ft, hence the fact that most parties top rope this route.

Love this route! But definite potential for ground fall, either before 1st bolt, or between 1st and 2nd. Don't see many people on it even though it's really stellar! Should be climbed more!

This a sweet pitch. The 5.7 rating seems a bit old school. The bottom 25ft or so felt harder than that, but once you leave the water groove it backs off in a hurry. Cruiser the rest of the way. Have bolts been added to this down low? Still runout higher up-- but it is really easy...
