Great jughaul until the break, then a tweaky tech-face section below the anchors. Great fun.


It's almost impossible to direct people on this wall of bolts. It's the Boltline directly right of Naysayer, which is the bolt line directly right of Building a Mystery. Both Naysayer and Alternative Medicine climb past a large, notable shelf ~2/3 of the way up, but Alternative Medicine tackles the bulging arete below it. Also, the stations are different, Alternative Medicine climbs to two chain anchors of equal length, where Naysayer does not. You'll figure it out. Probably. Good luck.


6 bolts, sport anchors
