BP leading up Upheaval 9-2010.
Belay from the ledge or you will not be able to lower the leader to the ground with anything shorter than a 60m rope.
Originally a 5.10c R trad line, it was bolted because it saw only one repeat ascent in 5 years. Since its bolting it has become very popular.
Fun and spicy moves up the slab. Lots of on-your-feet climbing makes this one a classic in my book.
Right most route on the slabs, starts off higher ledge.
8 bolts to nasty, needing to be replaced, anchors.

This is a great climb! Very thoughtful. I think the anchors have been replaced, they looked good. I took a fall right below the 6th bolt. I didn't get the move right, it's straightforward enough, but I guess I was having an off day. It was a 25-30 foot fall, with a bounce off the slab, and a big head knock on the flake below. Wear a helmet! Always! I'm not sure I'd be writing this comment if I wasn't wearing it.

I climbed this in fall of 2009, when I went back Dec 25th, noticed a couple of rock scars, particularly by the 2nd bolt (lets just say it's not a slab move anymore), and one further up by the 4th bolt (turned into a move over a bulge). Curious to know if anyone knew the history of the two scars, because I definitely don't remember them from 2009.

Definitely a hold broken off between the 2nd and 3rd bolt making a new crux that felt 5.10+ to me.
