Description 

Just like the original route Wishbone only with smaller holds and a little steeper, and a little harder grade.

Start up the slab to clip the first bolt, may want to stick clip as the clipping hold wasn't great (I'd guess about a 10c clip). Continue up the steep ground through jugs and some smaller holds. At the top look left for the 5th bolt, make some cool moves to it, and pull one last tricky move to get onto the hanging face.


Location 

Between Milk Bone and Wish Bone. First steep route from the left. Also is the only route with all black hangers.


Protection 

5 Bolts to Anchors, Stick Clip if desired.

Fist ascent of this fantastic climb by John 'The Gambler' Rosholt.

He must have been a giant because many of the bolts seem just out of reach. With 6'0" at my disposal I ended up preplacing the first quickdraw and extending the third quickdraw for the pinkpoint.

I fully expect to be lambasted for my shameful ascent.

Shame on you John!

Pre-placing draws on a sport route, how low can you go? :-)
