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.

Pitch 1- Begin on Jointed Venture skipping the bolted belay on the ledge. Continue up a fun, easy chimney. At the top of the chimney climb up and left past some blocks and up to a crack.

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