Description 

This 6-bolt sport route is near the right side of the crag. It climbs past the first two bolts of an obscure older route (possibly an unfinished project) that heads out left, then continues straight up past 4 more bolts to a two-bolt rap station.


Location 

Rap from rap station atop.


Protection 

6 bolts

We bolted this back in 2003 or so using a gas powered generator and a corded hammer drill (it's that close to the road). Got it's name due to the copious choss at the top of the cliff, one piece of which nearly killed my friends dog while we were working on it. I'm surprised anyone knows the name.

Also, kind of odd to claim a FA of a sport route that you didn't bolt (unless of course you know the history and that it hadn't been climbed).

The FA info and name are straight out of the MEC new routes book where the route was written up after the 2004 ascent.

That's funny. Maybe Scott Kerr (the actual first ascentionist) wrote in some chicken scrawl. Anyway, that's who it should be.
