Now, "Dude" - there's a name no man woul...


Climb featured face past 3 bolts to 2-bolt anchor. A good beginner lead.


The rightmost bolted line on the south face of LLUA's Rock. Starts just left of the cleft.


3 bolts + 2 bolt anchor.

I did not climb this route so I cannot speak for the bolts, but both anchors at the top of this climb are spinners (Nov. 2012). limited options for additional protection.

First sport route I've ever climbed (bouldering ability V5ish). Very simple and straight forward. Bolts at the top were spinny, to clean the route lowered off the chains farther to the left. Fun warm up though.
