Hook moves down low

Closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection MORE INFO >>>


Follow hook moves and two hangerless bolts to a thin seam. Can be done hammerless if you're feeling ambitious.

Easy to set a toprope after climbing Church Bowl Tree. Can be led, but there's no good gear until up higher so a fall before the offset cam placements will be onto a hangerless bolt...


10 ft. to the right of Church Bowl Tree.


Hooks, small pins/pecker, rivet hangers (bring a screamer if leading), and angles or offset aliens; fixed heads. Two bolt anchor up top.

From the anchors of Church Bowl Tree an ambitious pendulum to the right can be made to set up a top rope on the two bolt anchors at the top of the crack.

hooking moves are bathooks so having a talon is very helpful.

Nice to see Dana get credit for this... I was his belay monkey that day (though I think I drilled one of the bolts). Lawn chair, case of beer, fun times.
