The crux. Photo by Pat McCarthy.

Description 

This short climb has fun moves on great rock. The crux is at the bottom while moving up the face. Link up with the crack formed by a large flake.


Location 

Bo Derek is located on the west side of Givler's dome. A simple walkoff can be found on the North side of the dome.


Protection 

Cam to #2 camalot.

There are no anchors or good place for a natural anchor. Most use the bolted anchor far to the left of the climb and use a directional at the top of the crack.

"needs a bolt in my opinion."

I like you Geoff, but absolutely not. It's like a move and a half to a huge jug with a secure cam behind you.

IIRC, you can get in a good orange hb offset brass and pretty much have a TR at the crux. bolt is completely unnecessary here.

Awesome route, crux is super fun and can be protected by a Green C3 in the slot above the good side pull, feels pretty safe.

Did someone really suggest this needs a bolt? Farr, far from it.
