This fully bolted route starts 20 feet to the right of Banging The Bedboards and only a few feet of the fully bolted Saddlesore. A soft touch allows you to slither past the crux to a two bolt belay.


On the right side of the Newlywed Wall just to the right of Saddlesore.


5 bolts (QDs) to a two bolt belay.

Very well protected through the cruxy section. You can get a nut or small cam between the first and second bolt if desired.

Protects well through the crux which was nice since my partner and I mistakenly got on this thinking it was the fiddly 5.8 just to the left. Lots of groping around on terrible slopery holds on this route. Bring your slab footwork game for this one!
