BETA PHOTO: Daisy Cutter Route

Description 

This route begins in a chimney..crosses over an awkward (creepy) gap to a large flake...then up less than vertical rock to the top. Can be pretty committing for the 5.7 leader.

Location 

Beer Wall, Bubba City

Protection 

5 bolts and bolted anchors.

This would definitely be heady for someone who didn't feel solid at 5.7. Some of the bolt placements are less than stellar. Definitely some novel/interesting movement though for a sport route.

This route was really weird. I don't know how chimneys are usually bolted (if at all) but the bolts here were really awkward to get to sometimes. The bolts at the top also leave you an un-fun fall onto the left ledges or right face if you can't make the clips. My butt (which is currently purple) knows from experience.

That said, there are some great moves on this route. If this is your first chimney, maybe sit out until you get a toprope.

Welcome to Bubba City, the worst crag at the New.

Except for really classic routes like King of Swing @ Kingfish and The Decameron @ Tattoo, I'd have to agree. One of the reasons is because it gets mobbed because of the quantity of moderates (at places like Tattoo and Beer Wall, etc). Generally speaking though, if you want to NOT have to pluck the gems out of a bunch of average or worse routes, don't go to Bubba City.
