Located to the left of Mossy Boobs, The Safe Zone climbs up easy terrain out of the gate before reaching a small right facing arete. Working your way through the arete and pulling through the top face to the anchor is the crux of the climb. Fairly good climbing on solid rock and likely a good intro to the grade for those looking to break into the 10s.

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.
