Description 

Fun varied climbing on the longest route at Falling Rock. The guidebook rates this at 5.9 but I have a hard time believing it even makes the 5.8 grade as I suggested. The initial moves to the 1st bolt and pulling over the bulge to get above it are the hardest. After that it's a cruiser on good holds. Very good for a first lead at FR as long as the start doesn't scare you away.


Location 

Basically rap in from any route on the North Wall and walk to the base or follow the path (with the chockstone) down. This is the farthest route from the parking lot.


Protection 

11 bolts with a 2 bolt anchor up top on the cliff-side edge and another 2 bolt anchor on the top about 5ft from the edge.
