Anne Skidmore photo. The final moves.

Description 

Liousianna Bubble Bath is a wild and varied last pitch variation to any route that crosses the Blueberry Terrace (the huge ledge that is below Diedre's final 5.9 corner). It was put up on the lead; Dana "Maddog" Drummond hand drilled the crux bolt from hooks. Exposed and unexpected.


Location 

The route takes a hard right off the right hand side of the Blueberry Terrace. A cam placed high in the first sloping ledge of the Underground's last pitch protects the traverse into a small right facing corner. Follow the seam/crack to a short headwall protected by a single bolt. Maybe a bit of 5.8R getting into the right facing corner above. Exit out right


Protection 

Bring an assortment of nuts and small cams through hand sized. There are no anchors on top, either head to the trees or head hard left to the Kinesis bolt anchor.
