BETA PHOTO: Urchins Ate The Coral


This route begins with a slabby start which gets steeper, but more featured after about the second bolt. The route is well protected with bolts.


To the left of "Turning Point".


7 bolts to 2 bolts at the anchor.

This is actually the 4th bolted route in from Self Abuse. The first is an old and hard 5.11 climb, then Gooney Dunes, and then Turning Point. Just left of Urchins is a slabby 5.11b and then a 5.12 toprope.
