The first pitch is bolted. **Use a 70 meter cord to lower. Pitch 2 & 3 are both trad and summit the rock.
This is the second bolted route right of The Staircase. Start just right of a pine tree.
The 1st pitch has 8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. A 70 meter or double rope rappel needed. The 2nd and 3rd pitches require a set of stoppers and cams to 3 inches.

The left-hand route is called "Kansas Honey" and was first climbed by Leonard Coyne and Ed Russell in 1980. Originally done as a 3-pitch route to the top of Arch Rock, it had minimal protection for many years. Now the first pitch is well-protected with added bolts. The other routes were put up in the 1980s but I can't recall the route names or who the climbers were...

Pretty fun slab actually. It surprised me a bit. It seems like the bolts kinda wander, but don't worry, they lead you in the right direction. You can use a #2 if you'd like at the last left-facing bulge at the top. Definitely a 70m for rap.
