Joanne pulling the crux of Up From the Bog.

Description 

This is the best climb on The Bog Wall and is surprisingly tricky and awkward for the grade.


Location 

This is the obvious left crack.


Protection 

Small to medium nuts and cams. I placed a 4.5 camalot, but there are good alternatives. Protects well, but the crack shape makes some of the nuts fiddly.

There are two bolts on a wall set back from the top of the climb. They are very convenient, but the direction of pull is more outward than downward, which is a little disconcerting. This climb does get top-roped very often off these anchors if that's any reassurance.

Pretty functional for what it is. Protects well, but you need a big piece (3" maybe, I can't imagine how the OP placed a 4.5" piece) at the end though, unless you want to run it out. It's pretty harmless though, as runouts go. Fun fist jamming for a couple moves, a mantle and you're done.

Pretty functional? It's a crack for gods sake. And a very nice crack at that. Lots of edges and features on either side of the crack, which keeps the grade reasonable.
