|Behind the Scenes
Crux comes between 2nd and 3rd bolts. Traverse left from 3rd bolt to a brittle flake. Pass 3 more bolts and surmount a small overlap. Continue climbing (5.9/10a) clipping a few more bolts along the way.
Typical Punchbowl rock quality keeps this route from achieving a higher star rating.
Third bolt was placed on 2nd ascent by FA's to eliminate run-out.
Route begins at a large hueco to the right of a prominent water streak located near the center of Behind The Scenes Wall.
Follow meandering line of bolts to a chain anchor. No gear.
