This route takes a steep line up the far left-side of the Aquarium Wall.
Pitch 1: Climb past three bolts on a dirty moss-covered ledge to a two bolt anchor.
Pitch 2: Climb up a short ramp and clip the first of six bolts on a slightly overhanging wall. Power up on good sharp edges to a funky move past the fourth bolt. Gain a small ledge and make a technical move past the fifth bolt and cruise up to the anchor.
Bring 10 quickdraws.

Bravo Bob! Two thumbs up! Crisp edging on steep granite high above the creek make this a quality route, and a nice addition to Bell Buttress.
Environmental destruction? - please give me a break Roger...

What is the appeal of putting that much work into bolting another generic sportclimb?

Rest assured the" future of life" will be well bolted and bear the name of the great Bob D.

This is a pretty darn good pitch, as are Nowhere Man and Huck Finn. Once again Bob D impresses with his ability to unearth gems from the unlikeliest of mines.

Pretty good climbing, Too bad it is not longer. Don't let the 11+ grade scare you- it is not that hard and it is very closely bolted.
