Jeff Crow starts up Nice Marmot. Still 8' to the ...

Description 

First bolt is 15+' off the deck, with legitimate 5.8 climbing up to it. It is possible to clip the first bolt on Gutterballs, but wouldn't keep you off the deck if you blew the first clip.


Location 

Start toward the left side of the south face, just right of Gutterballs and left of a shallow crack.


Protection 

3 bolts to 2-bolt anchor. Chains are rusty and could stand replacement.

There is now a shiny new lower first bolt. I think this route is slightly easier than the one to the left.

This route hates me... Not sure what its deal is but I am going to say that the rock smoothes out as soon as I touch it. So in my defense I say it is 5.hard!! No but seriously just took my first lead fall ever on the first bolt. Got scared, bailed and went and led Face in the Muck or whatever on the back side.

My buddy did lead this, said it was scary, but he climbed it no problem. I say rating is right, I am just weak.

As Joseph said, this now has 4 bolts and seems like it no longer deserves the PG13 rating. Enjoyed this a lot, and have to disagree that it's easier than Gutterballs. Thought it required a bit more thought.
