Judge Pulling the Bulge.

Private Property - CLOSED MORE INFO >>>


Face climb up good, gray rock left of Rock-Ectomy. Head up and right. Continue up towards the "cave" aiming LEFT of the "loose pillar". Clip a bolt in the cave and then pull through the roof past one last glue in above the lip. Scramble up onto the ledge and then head straight up on easier terrain. Join up with Rock-Ectomy near the top.


Immediately left of the Rock-Ecotomy start "gully" on dark gray rock.



Mussy hooks for lowering (presently shares anchor with Rock-Ectomy)
