|Pogue's Cave Area
This route still has some flakey rock around the second bolt, but should continue to clean up nicely. The upper arete is great steep climbing.
Start on large huecos and head straight up, before reaching the overhanging wall above move left into a scoop near the blunt arete. Climb up into the scoop and clip a bolt just below a ledge. Find the good holds on the ledge and mantle. Climb the steep arete on good pockets and a horizontal. Move right to mantle onto the ledge where the anchor is located.
On the left side of the scooped out section at the right end of the Pogue's Cave area.
5 bolts to anchors.

Originally lead on gear and the middle bolt in April 2012, finished in September 2013.....such is LIFE.

Nice shiny bolts, but as of August '14 it's still sloughing a fair bit. The anchors are not ideal for TR. I could see this route cleaning up to be a Pogue's Cave classic, or maybe the rain will keep it funky forever...
