The Borg Boulder. "Locutus" follows the...

Description 

Another fantastic Roth testpiece, this beautiful little route has some of the most jam packed fun pocket pulling at Shelf!

This route begins with large pulls between good monos, to a powerful crux (long draw at the second bolt) between gastons, tech footwork, and a heartbreaking throw to a big sidepull. Keep it together for the top, becuase a technical gaston/sidepull crux guards the anchors.

If it were even twice as long, this would get five stars in a four star system!

Location 

This route takes the center line up the borg boulder, just right of Locutus. Pretty easy to find as it's the middle route of the three.

Protection 

Three bolts to coldshut anchors.
