A quality climb that offers a variety of climbing and amazing position. Crop Circles ascends the arete with the blank streak running across it on the face. The delicate and finger intensive crux comes at the beginning of the arete, but the final bulge at the top is no easy exit. Lie backs, aretes, lunges, and face climbing; Crop Circles has it all, getting better the higher you go.


Towards the middle of the climbing area.

The one time I was there I took a look at this line and noticed the 1st bolt was missing. Did you replace it?

I noticed that too. I haven't been up there to replace it yet, but I should do it soon. You can stick clip the second bolt though and it doesnt take much away from the route.
