Pierced Lip Lock.

State Park; Fee Required. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route stands out for me as the best at the cliff: fun, sustained climbing, requiring a variety of techniques on great rock in a beautiful setting. Easy climbing leads past the first bolt into a steep dihedral capped by roofs. Tread lightly at the pierced lip, and try not to break it or we'll have to rename the route "Busted Lip".

Location 

This is the 5th route from the left, on the right side of the main, West end, wall. This is the last route before you have to scramble up to reach the start of Academic Freedom.

Protection 

14 bolts to anchors.

This thing is cool. Get to the "lip", hope she doesn't kiss you goodnight.

This route is rewarding, very well-protected, and has a great view from the top. Well worth 3 1/2 stars.
