Europithacus begins just to left of the main roof system on TBB and left of the two long, two pitch routes. It starts up a low angle ramp behind a tree and right off the trail. A variation start exists 10 ft left that fires up a thin finger tips crack. Either start converges where the ramp meets the overhanging face at about 30 ft. Negotiate this by neat trick, protected by two blots, and head up via 5.9/5.10 climbing on good solid SSV granite. I'd give it a star for the 5.11 trick over the leaning face. Good warm-up route.


QD only. This route shares an anchor with the right hand variation of The Bruise Collector and offers an easy way to top rope TBC. At about 75 ft in length the route needs 10 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
