Left to right: Puppet Strings, Shotgun Baptism, 12...


A steep, difficult, under-cut start climbs to jugs and crisp edges. Good clips and a nice bulge finish keep this route good from beginning to end.


This route is the middle climb of three at the early entrance of the Green Valley Gap It is on the south facing side and is identified by a roomy cave marking it's start.


Four bolts to an anchor.

whats up with the bolt to the right of the second bolt on the face near 12 gauge? is that a variation of the route? or am i climbing the wrong route? (i climbed directly up the bolt line)

I know at one time there was a two bolt variation to the right of the route, but I think the first bolt was stolen from the variation, so now there is just the second lone bolt. I remember the variation was fun and a bit more technical and crimpy then the actual route.
