Description 

This route is located on the left side of the upper Bond Boulder, left of RCA. The balancy crux is encountered early, and pleasant slab climbing continues to the anchor. A very worthwhile addition to the area.


Protection 

6 bolts to a bolted anchor/rap

Excellent rock and position on this route. The rock at the bottom is slightly polished while the upper section features crisp edges on chocolate patina - some of the nicer rock in Josh. Three stars out of five.

This is but one of many new routes in the area, most of which are well-protected face routes on good rock. This has really developed into a nice area to escape the wind and cold while doing some fun routes.

Though Murf's rating (10b) is pretty close to the mark (IMO, 10/a/b), this is another example of Todd giving a 5.8+/9 rating to a route in order to give 5.8 more respect.

No doubt, the key chain with photo of Brittany Spears on the anchor suggests that Brittany Spears should be the name. However, the route was named for Eva Fitts who (along with Todd and Tucker Tech) was on the FA.

Very nice low angle slab route. There are several 5.9-5.10- slab routes in the area. Any one ventured up the One Arm Giant?

Slightly intimidating through the first 3 bolts - you could fall off the arete into space below! Equally cruxy for the follower, too.
