City of Rocks – Bath Rock West – Roller Coaster – 5.9 **
Roller Coaster the first route on the left of the Bath Rock west wall and is 7 bolts to chain anchors. The route is relativity short which brings down it star rating for me and I thought that its grade was a little weak and should go 5.8 at best. The climbing is really straight forward with plenty of holds where ever you look. There is a bolt or two that I used longer runners on to prevent rope drag, bolt number 2 was one of those (I think).
This is a perfect route to do for first time leaders. I got my buddy to lead it who hadn’t climbed for three years due to climbing mishap. This is a decent warm-up but is not great by any stretch of the imagination.
