Climb the short blue face just past Snipe Hunter. The crux is the first fifteen feet on big lockoffs to positive crimps.


It is at The Punchbowl past Snipe Hunter. On the blue wall with two routes, this one is on the right.


3 bolts and anchor.

The description is a little vague, but there is a short wall with 2 routes that each have 3 bolts to a shared anchor that is just past / right of the wall with Drive By Shooting etc. This wall is about 100' around the corner.

Both of these routes could use another bolt up at the top, because a fall from the choss to grass ledge-finish of either would put you right back at the ground.

The grades seem off too. Maybe the left is 10+ and the right is mid 11? Hard to grade this climbing from onsight attempts though, since moves can be tough to read here.
