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.

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.
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.

I agree with Garret's comment above. Way over bolted and too long. This route is pointless after the fourth bolt. A 5.7- move to clip the first bolt then 5.5 climbing to the fourth, followed by 5.4 down to hiking as you get closer to the anchor. I stood up and walked past the last three bolts to the anchor. I liked the start of the route but its unnecessarily long. They could of used some of these bolts on some of the other very poorly bolted routes on Wall Street.
