Description 

This is on the south facing wall across from x-treme unction/watchtower routes. There is a slab with a lone bolt, also a lone bolt over the overhang (bob's rocking chair). You can set up a tr by third classing from the west(eaisiest way.)

Getting There 

The best way to occupy this wall is to a)trad climb, or b) Set up a TR hooked to the anchors and sling with a runner around the tree branch that sits atop the slab section with the lone bolt. This eliminates all rope drag and allows you to climb two different routes.

In the ruckman's book they list the route and the FA as anonymous, I don't feel to bad about posting as hippies anonymous because I found this route due to two hippies who would load a bowl then climb 40 feet, load a bowl climb another 40 feet.....all day long. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Best walk off these interesting climbs. Only one of the twin bolts atop 'Squash Rocker' was endowed with a quicklink.
