This might be a contender for the easiest sport route in the Red.

The start may be harder for shorter people, or easier for people comfortable smearing on lichens.

Rope drag on top of the ledge.

The top anchors have been removed from the boulder from which they were originally placed. A new fixe ring top anchor was installed at the location of the original third bolt.

A handbrush would be nice on this route, a lot of sand piles up on these hold. It's never ending. It's kind of like being at the beach even.

I set up a top rope on this for my seven year old twins. Their first climb. They wanted to do it over and over. The start was way hard for them however due to their height. ( 3.5ft or so ).

Eliminate the rope drag by downclimbing, my first lead/onsite, good place to learn how to clean as well, bring the kiddies.

Easy but fun to solo.

My little girl loved this route. She is 3 and very short, but after the start she was able to climb the whole thing

First climbing experience for two grandkids - Glad it's here. That's why it's Practice Wall.
