|Kernville Rock (a.k.a. Kern Slabs)
Start on a section of lower angle rock with some flakes to place stoppers on. Climb to a ledge where the first bolt is, about 25 feet off the ground. Climb past 12 bolts (sport-ish) on the slab to a bolted anchor over 170 feet high. The sixth bolt is doubled for the rappel back down.
About 50 feet to the right of Initiation Crack and just to the right of Bugging Around. A large tree/bush lies just to the left of this route to provide shade in summer months. To locate the route, look for a line of five tightly-spaced bolts starting 30 feet up.
Some wires for the start and QD's for the bolts. 2 bolt anchor on top.

Good route - edgy and fairly sustained. Was happy to have all those bolts.
