Deb climbs the upper bit with the bolted small bul...

Description 

This is a weird route that feels a bit contrived to avoid moving left at its crux. Still, the bolts on the bulge draw the eye and tickles the curiosity...which may kill cats but not humans.

You can start this just to the right of the Bolt To Crack To Bolts route on blocky terrain. Pass a chopped bolt near a good horizontal. Move up to the bolted bulge. Now, the bottom of this Buddha belly is not as positive as you might like, which makes you try hard to avoid the easier crack to the left. If you really force it, you can make this sort of 5.10...eh. Mount the slab. Move up to a bolt and a mantel move. To your left you will see an odd, bolt reinforced flake with a bolt through it and one just below it. Whodathunkit? Place a cam and move up to the last bolt with weird undercling type holds. The last bit is a bit precarious for balance as the hand holds get rounded. Finish at a 2 bolt anchor (with a weird nearly shut hanger).

Obviously, this is not the real name of this climb. If you have info about the climb, let me know and I can update this. Thanks!


Location 

This is the 3rd route from the left at the Mine Hole Crag and is easily identified by its 2 bolts under a small bulge. It is ~65 feet left of the mine hole.


Protection 

A light rack to a #2 Camalot, 4 bolts, and a 2 bolt anchor.

There is an unpatched, chopped bolt low on this route.
