Description 

Looking at the start of this it looks alot harder than 10d (and probably is a little sandbagged). Anyways with difficulty pull of the ground and figure out how to get to and past the second bolt. Once past the second bolt a nice rest is obtained and easier ground up to the anchors. On the upper section it is much easier to climb slightly left of the bolt line.


Location 

Left of the Sponge by about 50 feet. It is the only route on the rock.


Protection 

4 Bolts to Chains

CONDITION REPORT 

There's a beehive in the crack next to the anchors. Another party climbed this route and the leader got stung as he clipped draws to the chains. It's a beehive, not a wasp nest, so the guy had to remove the stinger. After several more times climbing up to retrieve his draws - and subsequently getting stung again - we lent him some webbing to anchor to a tree above and rap in from the side, where he finally got the rest of their gear. Watch out!
