The upper crux bulge of Bolt the Planet. Not as ha...
An improbable line, surmounting two steep bulges at a relatively modest grade. Some poor rock, combined with a height dependent crux detracts from this otherwise classic route.
Begin up an easy, prickly slab to reach a nice panel of good pockets & edges. A low-angle section of less than perfect rock leads to a good stance below the first bulge. Massive-though-spooky jug flakes provide a nice warmup clearing the first bulge. A good rest allows ample opportunity to ponder the next, blank-looking bulge. A huge reach from an undercling to a hidden jug is the key here. Shorties can find other options a few feet off the bolt line.

This is actually a really cool climb. The divide before the bulge is a bit dusty and still has loose rock. Great holds on the bulge.
