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.

Climb through flakes following the most profound crack passing both good and marginal placements. Continue on this until the crack dies out. Slope, smear, then insecurely rock your way left onto a large ledge to gain the anchor.This route is short and almost more work than its worth. The crux sits high and the protection is a bit hard to place. Shaky gea...[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.
