The easier and more fun climb of the two lines on the slabby low angle block within the Combination Blocks area.
Climb up and clip the first bolt and stay right. Use knobs and big holds to work your way up into a mini-groove where stemming allows for good balance and fun moves to the top of the climb where a mini-bulge stands between you and the anchors. This climb has its own set of anchors from Jete.
This climb makes for a good beginner lead climb at Smith Rock.

The Sterling Hollow Block is great at biting down on ropes when tying friction knots using a Prusik, Klemheist, or auto block. Its Aramid fiber construction helps resist abrasion and heat. Pony up a few extra bucks to have one hanging from your harness, you’ll end up using it.
