Description 

This is a short but enjoyable route. This would be a really good starting lead as it is closely bolted and is of an easy grade.

Location 

This route is one of several nice routes in the alcove area of the pool wall in Ouray. A friendly place to climb with closely spaced bolts. Park in the upper lot for the pool in town. Cross the road and head up the obvious wash. You pass an old no trespassing sign, access is currently allowed, continue up the wash and you will be in the alcove

First Time Out is right of Test Drive. It is on the left wall just as you begin heading up the obvious, scree-filled wash.

Protection 

Bolts.

I bolted this line for my father after he was hit by a drunk driver and badly injured. This line was to help me keep on the rock and to nurse his metal. The rock can cure all.
