While this route looks like a pile, it provides a great training ground for technicians looking to hone their craft. Comprised of a series of complex, delicate sequences this route stays on you until the last few feet. The rock was surprisingly solid for the Boneyard.

Bad To The Bone can be located by dropping down and around a multi-colored corner with a notable lip sixty feet up. This is When The Whip Comes Down. Fifteen feet to the left is Bad to the Bone. The closed shut anchors are visible from the ground. There is a pronounced undercling between the first and second bolt.

Approximately 6 to 8 bolts.
