|The Blob - Southeast Face
Interesting and delicate climbing that's the perfect compliment to Papa Woolsey with all of it's bolts. The hardest moves are at or near protection but it is a little runout. Two stars out of five.
Just right of Papa Woolsey.
Gear to 3" including wires.

For some small degree of security, you can cinch up the wire of a smaller size nut around a downward sloping old rivet right at the crux. Heads up: A fall here has very high ground fall potential.

Another name for this route was "Effigy", which gives some insight into the route name "Effigy Too".

This route was actually first done in 1965 (not 1972) by Mark and Beverly Powell. Route was named for Beverly's Mom (Betty Woolsey) who was camping with the Powells that weekend.

Fun route, tick it if you like a little spice or TR it if you don't.

Don't fall before the first bolt. That's it.

Not sure it warrants an R-rating with the right piece of gear (#0 tcu) placed up in the back of an old pin scar just before the crux. This will be just below your feet when making the crux move. It seemed like it would require way more effort to cinch the old stud from a tenuous stance than to simply make the move up to the good bolt, but YMMV. Good fun route.
