BETA PHOTO: Park Ridge Rock from approach trail.

Description 

Route begins on the right side of Park Ridge Rock. Slab to the first bolt, covered in lichen with a small horizontal crack (variation: stay right, avoid the lichen). Continue past a nice bivy site :-) and up the face to the next two bolts and the anchor at the top.

Note: dangerously loose 50+ lb rock removed by John Knight (2/15/04), but watch out for hollow flakes just below the top.

Protection 

3 quickdraws, 4 in case you drop one...

Good beginner climb, although there are sections of very loose/chossy rock. The large block from which you clip the third bolt is home to a nesting barn owl. She's a beauty, and I feel bad to have given her such a scare. I would encourage other climbers to leave this route alone until after spring.

I'm with Jad - if there's a nesting owl on the route, I would also strongly recommend leaving some space for it. There's lotsa other climbs to do, and something I've learned about rock climbs over the years - they'll wait for you...

Hmm, when I led this easy climb I assumed it was Tips Ahoy.

There doesn't appear to be any lead bolts on this route, solid anchor though. There was a hole down low but no bolt, probably removed because there's a perfect crack right next to it. Didn't see any nesting owls but there were swarming sparrows.
