Sometimes, regardless of how difficult a route is, one climbs stuff just because the features beckon. FOAL is chock full of such nifty features.

P1: 5.10, 90 feet. Begin on the ledge left of SY. There is a double bolt anchor for the starting belay. Most of the climbing is not harder than 5.9, but a harder move may be needed for the height dis-advantaged. It is roughly 5.10 for the start, which begins on typical jugs. It is 5.10 again standing above the second clip. Angle right and up to a double bolt anchor. Some cool position and some huge jugs are found on the way. For kicks, you can top-rope the overhangs below.

P2: 5.8, 80 feet. Romp up on massive features. It is roughly 5.8 and bolted (!!).

P3: A 50 foot third class walkoff right that will take protection if you choose to stay roped up. There is a 2 bolt anchor.


This is left of the main alcove, and 50 feet from SY. From the top of P3, there is a well-cairned walk-off that runs North and then South around the crag to drop you in the main alcove.


P1: 10 quickdraws; P2: 8 quickdraws; P3: 3rd class walkoff, but if you choose to remain roped up, there are several places for mid-range camming units. The top of each pitch has a double bolt belay anchor. A 60 meter rope is recommended if you intend to rap.

Eds. the raps are 75 and 80 feet each.

Dave enjoys the easier climbing above the start of P1. <br /> <br />This pitch is probably 90 feet long.  Also, an 80 foot rappel gets you to the ground from the P1 anchor.

Dave continues up P2, which feels significantly harder than 5.6.  It is probably closer to 5.8, and it is ~75 feet long.

This is a nice route. The crux utilizes a hidden pocket left of the obvious rest between bolts 1 & 2. Thanks, Richard!

Leo, I can switch P2 to 5.8 if you feel that is more accurate.

That would probably be better, but if you made it up P1, you can probably lead 5.8. Thanks!
