Description 

5.11c (R=Rolofson). Like many routes on the wall, the grading may be soft or simply not the same for everyone. LS is the furthest left of the routes on the Bowling Alley proper and just right of the Mineshaft. Run up through some funky blocks for about 5.10 and then surmount the bulge on sloper moves. Solid rock but a bit weird for my taste.


Protection 

A dozen draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top. A 60 meter rope just gets you down.

Isn't this the furthest left route?

Funky route-- more reminiscent of Clear Creek lines than what I know of Boulder Canyon. The crux is traversing right into a bouldery layback problem about 60 feet up. I cruised right by the second bolt in this section in my desire to get on solid ground, then had a helluva time reaching behind my right leg to clip the sucker. That section and just above are quite slopey. A fun route; worth doing for variety's sake.
