|The Bond Boulders
This climb lies on the left arete of the Live And Let Die Boulder and is about 40' left of that route starting off a large boulder lying against the rock.
Start off the leaning boulder and make commiting moves on crispy edges to the first bolt (optional tiny cam before the first bolt). Delicate friction with the occasional edge lead up and left to the arete proper which finishes with a curiously attached flake at the top.
The moves are fun and the rock in the middle section is quite good making this a worthy addition to the area. Two stars out of five.
4 bolts, anchors, optional pro to .4"

Looks like Todd added a 5th bolt at the start - no need for the tiny cam mentioned above.
