BETA PHOTO: Drop the Anchor 5.8+


Nothing remarkable about this route other than that it is one of the very few easy sport routes in the area.
CLimb a line of big holds near the bolts to a small roof and then up to the anchors. Watch out for drag- and rap instead of lower off to save wear on your rope.


Continue West past all of the better known routes on Sky Bridge, passing even The Doppler Effect and Dave The Dude. Turn a corner from the S Facing wall to get to a West facing wall and proceed to walk some distance further until you encounter a bolted line on a face with large holds.


5 bolts to a bolted anchor.
