Up From the Bog
|337 page views|
This is the best climb on The Bog Wall and is surprisingly tricky and awkward for the grade.
This is the obvious left crack.
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.
