Description 

We tried to keep this route as "trad" as possible and at the time the boys were inspired by the film "Hard Grit", but we weren't quite willing to go that far with our style of ascent. The bolts are spaced, but if I remember correctly, Chris Parker blew the second clip and still didn't hit the ground, so I guess it doesn't get an "R" rating. Anyway, the climbing if fun, the rock quality is great. It's a spicy, tricky lead though, so you may want to check it out on toprope first (which is easily accomplished).

Location 

This is located just right of the prominent Roadside Attraction crack. 3 bolts lead to a seam that protects with gear.

Protection 

Stoppers and small cams.
