Colin Cikoski leaving the ledge on Bob Marley Meet...


Don't get smoked. A slightly overhanging, difficult start off the ground leads to more fun thin crimping and sidepulls on a near vertical face, to the anchor on the ledge.

An extension of the route continues up and left (see comments below and the route description for it).


4th climb from the right end of Dirt Wall.


7 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Really, really fun. Like Little Caterpillar, it's an amazingly good route considering how short it is. Can climb this to the finishing ledge, take a nap, then continue up from the left end of the ledge to the top of Duran Duran for an exciting short addition (probably 11+ variation). Can hang draws on Duran Duran from there if you're inclined.

Originally 4 bolts to the ledge, there is now a 5th bolt before the ledge if you want to do the new extention which is 8 bolts and anchors. From the left end of the ledge work up to the right end of the horizontal. A hidden pinch out right and a few nice pockets take you up the steep head wall to an anchor right of Duran Duran. TR'd previousely by Dave S and Claude, then by myself and finally bolted by Lance, I think. Grade seemed about 5.12.

Have Fun.

I clipped 7 bolts today (no extension, just to the ledge), so I think a few were more recently added.
