Description 

This well bolted slab route is located just to the right of the bush below Puppy Love. Pull a 5.7 move off the deck and clip the first of many closely spaced bolts. A good intro to soft sandstone fiction climbing. Rap from a two bolt anchor at 90ft to prevent deep rope groves from top ropping.

This route used to have only 2 bolts on it.


Location 

This well bolted slab roue is located to the right of Puppy Love and Steel your Face.


Protection

I tried to get a good shot of the slope of the slab.  It starts out pretty steep (as far as slab goes) and slowly levels out as you ascend.

Wow. Every year this get's alittle worse. Decent pockets but the whole frickin' route is covered in sand...hard to use "friction" when you are standing on sand covered sandstone. Groves at the top are getting pretty bad...be sure to rap off.

My 14 yr. old son's first lead climb. First move was the only 5.7 in my opinion, the rest was like walking up a steep ramp. Good one to train someone on, as long as you don't have to lower them off. Rapping down is highly recommended.

Good foot work. Major rope drag. Use a 70 meter.

nice easy going route. It's relaxing and a fun warmup as well as a training route.

The route should have anchors after the third bolt. The top part of the climb is literally a walk up.

Had to skip some upper bolts due to lack of quick draws...didn't realize this route was so long looking at it from the ground. Thought it was fun though.
