Three exciting roofs.
(4/6/09 Photo by Perin Blan...
Surprisingly fun route to the left of Raid. I thought this route was a slight bit overrated in the Ruckman guide. But hey, .10c or d? who really knows?
The start is fun on a steep arete section and then you get the typical slab between steep steps common in the middle of Bug Barn. Quite enjoyable and not as stiff as many of the other lines here.
9 bolts and chain anchor.
Starts on a little knoll higher than the surrounding cliff base. The third bolted line from the right on the main (southwest) face of Bug Barn.

I really, really liked this route (and I thought it was a bit easier than Lacy Doggie Panties, so if that one is .10c, then this one is... .10c- ?)

As I said in my description, I feel like it is overrated as well. I have no problem with calling it 5.10b.

Each roof was a blast. I especially liked making committing moves and being rewarded by good holds above. Add to it good rock and a quiet location to really make this a classic route.

Great holds the whole way up with a few committing moves on less stellar holds to reach the next jug. fun.
