BETA PHOTO: route starts just below the hole


Description 

Start just left of Bottoms Up below a patch of varnish. Climb slabby wall past 4 bolts. Easy up high. Crux is getting to the first bolt. The move is committing and awkward. I got a "good" RP in a seam by the large hole/pocket. Good climbing past the bolts.


Location 

Start just left of Bottoms Up. Descent is the same as the other routes on this wall


Protection 

Bolts. Optional sz(0/1)RP to protect move getting to the first bolt.

You only really need your sport draws for this and some gear to build an anchor. I recall using .75,1,3 way up at top.

Good but not great route. The bolts are few but well placed so the climbing doesn't feel bold. Definitely bring a few small cams for the 5.easy top section or be prepared for a massive runout on friable rock.
