This route is located on a short slabby wall just uphill from 'The Fin'. This is as of 10/8/2001 the only bolted route on this wall, although I am sure there are other alternatives to this route once you gained the anchors, or from the protection available above to top rope.
This route climbs the slabby wall past 4 bolts to the anchor, a good route to introduce climbers to leading, as the stances are very generous as well as the climbing.
4 (or possibly retrobolted to 5) bolts - 2 bolt anchor.
This is the bolted line to the right of the fin (with 3 bolted lines) and ascends up right and then into a wide groove.

Route name: STRATEGERY 5.7-, one star. Sport climb FA: Azenda & Pat Thompson, Rick Thompson, July 2001 The groove just right of THE JOINT VENTURE is accessed by traversing in from the right. Four bolts. 35 feet
The wall to right of this route is the REAL toprope wall that many guide services use. Can be a real scene on a busy day.

Easy route to end the day with. This is the last route uphill before reaching the Top Rope area, and is immediately across from Edge of Time. From the start, climb to the first bolt and then traverse left to a dihedral. The remaining bolts are located in a line up the groove. The crux is between the second and third bolt with some awkward moves through the dihedral. Short, but enjoyable.

Nice moderate route. Good for kids & people like me who are still getting better. After top roping it once, we pulled the rope & my 10 y.o. son used it as his first lead.

All the bolts on this route except for the fifth bolt below the rap rings are loose, had no way to tighten them.

I think there are 5 bolts on this route, not 4. It is very well protected in any event. Easy clips.
