Big FIsh

Type: 
Rock
Description: 
Starts at a black fixed line at sea level. follow this is a single ring where the route starts. The first pitch suffers from seepage early in the AM. Best to climb and fix this in the afternoon and climb the rest the next day or Rap in from the track. Single rack to #2 with doubles in 0.3-0.5. Small to medium wires only. Handy to have a tag line and haul a small pack. too hard to climb with a pack on for most,
