Mantle a ledge, reach around the corner and dead point for the next ledge. Follow the corner to the top. Some fun moves.


Left of Penitent Crack is a face with one bolt in it. That's your climb. Do the mantle or skip it by starting left.


One bolt and manky trad pro. TR is best.

I remember thinking that the bolt was in a strange place. Kind of too low to do any good. Someone should relocate the bolt, add a few more, and modernize this thing. The Hollow needs a good 5.10 sport route.

This climb is named after the 6in blade I stow under the seat of my purple Jeep.

A worthy retro bolt for sure, the rock's way bad for gear.

Slightly easier if you go around the corner right after the mantle, especially for shorter climbers.
