Another good route on the Sponge. Shares a start with Hollywood Tim and then moves left through a small roof/bulge (crux) to easier terrain above back right to the anchors on Hollywood Tim.


Start the same as Hollywood Tim clipping the first two bolts of Hollywood Tim but then go slighty left through the small roof clipping four more bolts en route to the anchors.


5 bolts to Fixe Super Shuts atop Hollywood Tim.

Third bolt on this rig looked a bit suspect. Bolt protruding some and nut was right up at the end of the threads... couldnt tighten it back by hand. Looks like it needs to be replaced and even moved considering the angle at which it was placed with respect to direction of fall. Happy to put in the work but I dont have a drill at the moment.
