Body surfin

Description 

This route is fun. The start (a slabby ledge) and finish (a bit past vertical) are the toughest parts, but the holds are great and reminiscent of some of the granite boulders around Bishop, CA. Just follow the big holds.


Location 

The start is just left of the big chimney. It begins with a ledge about 4 feet high that leads to a small right-facing dihedral.


Protection 

Top rope or a rack with a wide range of gear. Two bolts on top serve as an anchor.

A nice 5.8-ish variation keeps to the right and finishes on the steeper crack to the right of the regular finish with good gear and fun moves.

Great top rope route or a nice chicken head sling fest. Really 5.6ish until the last crack. Great fun moves at the top of this one.

A really fun climb, it protects well and is a nice route when working your way up through the trad grades.
