Coming up to the crux on Prologue

Description 

After you cross the creek to get to the base of the climb, look at the bolt line furthest to your right, and gaze up at the climb. It looks pretty easy, and for the first part it is. The first bolt is a little run out, but chances are, if you're attempting a 6a (French scale) climb, it will be a piece of cake. The climb follows the bolts slightly right of the crack and then straight up. Don't let the first part of the climb fool you. After the ledge, the climbing becomes worthy of the grade, and this is one of those climbs which saves the crux for last. There are two options for finishing the route - you can either go straight up as a face climb, or chimney up the right side. As you get to the top, set your anchor, and gaze at the beautiful scenery.


Location 

The first climb above the climbing permitted sign.


Protection 

8 bolts. Bolted anchor with rappel rings at the top.
