Rob Kelman on Barock.
This route is 2nd from the left, between Ixodes
and Nervous Tic
. It heads up the obvious, slanting, offwidth crack. After 30 feet, the crack ends, and the climb heads straight up the slab. Originally this required gear, but after I realized that most sport climbers don't carry #6 Camalots, I put a couple of bolts next to the crack. No gear other than draws is needed. The cruxes are the upper part of the offwidth, and higher up on the slab.
10-12 draws. The anchor is a chain slung around a tree.

There appear to be 2 additional pitches above this. P2 (~5.8) has only 2 bolts and a set of chains on a pair of anchor bolts. P3 (5.5) has 4 bolts and angles left. You have to do a diagonal rap of P3 if you only have 1 60m rope.

Pitch 2 has 6 bolts, the third one does not make much sense as it lies at knee height after the loose, left-facing dihedral. Pitches 1-2 or 2-3 can be combined, 2 raps.
