Description 

Bongo has character. It is a fun route, but it is also a heady route. It is easy, but it is hard.

The route follows a splitter crack up a slabby face. Most of the climbing is on the surrounding face, but knowing how to jam will help a lot on this route.

The "bongo" is up high, a plate of friable rock that resounds when knocked upon. Unfortunately, there is a perpetual wasp nest somewhere inside the cavity of rock. It's usually not too bad if you tread lightly, but there is always some joker in your party that has to knock around on the stuff.


Location 

Walk along the cliffline past quite a few crack systems. Just before a distinct right slanting dihedral right over the trail is a splitter crack on a slab. This is Bongo.


Protection 

Standard rack. Bolt anchors.
