A contender for the shortest bolted climb in Rumne...
Note: New route moratorium area MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Boulder problem with bolts.
Super sharp, crimpy and the clips are hard to make. If this is your limit, hang the draws and suss out the moves with caution, don't botch a clip or the ground will be coming up awful fast.
This is a wonderful climb for the 5.12 climber looking for a warm up for Pulse, and the other 5.12s at this small crag.


Location 

Halfway up the cliff towards Pulse, the obvious mid-11 overhanging crimpy climb.


Protection 

2 bolts to anchor

I've walked by this numerous times and never noticed the bolted line. The rock waves in and out and there are enough chalked stains to show an idea of the first couple of moves. The holds aren't that bad, just sharp. I found no problems with clipping the chains, from a nice stance slightly out to the right.

i did this today :) WICKED FUN! didnt think the clips were too scary though... i would caution against z-clipping cuz the clips are close.. i did and went... damn! and had to un clip and re clip on the onsight! that was a little strenous :) but i didnt feel like this was too much of a sport route.... more like a solid boulderproblem... why was this boulted again? the fall is clean...

Onsighted it this weekend on pure overgriping and not wanting to fall :) I even rocked the sit start (the boulderer in me wouldn't accept anything different haha) Definitely a fun problem even though it's sharp as hell.

So I bouldered the first couple moves of this and thought about continuing up un-roped. I decided rope was a good idea so I down climbed and tied in, then did it first go. Would be a much better climb if taller and not as sharp.

I did this climb about 10 years ago and it was, as now, sharp as hell. I was wondering if I was going to slice my finger wide open just about every move.
