Alison Conrad on Edges and Ledges and Bruno Haché ...
The first route with my new drill. Brand New Bosch climbs the corner to the right of Edges and Ledges and ends at the same ledge.
Start up the slab as for Edges and Ledges, and climb broken rock to the base of a right-facing corner 15' right of Edges and Ledges. Climb up the corner, and traverse right to a good ledge midway up. Stem up and work back left. Continue up and turn a small overhang at the top.
On the left side of the Boulder Slips crag, at the base of a broken slab, about 100' above the road. Starts in the same place as "Edges and Ledges" and Minutia.
6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.

Another Great route by the bolters over here! The crux is definitely right at the first boulder jutting out. I think it's after the third bolt... can't remember. But have fun and be safe!

Found the crux to be moving back left and up from the big ledge. Other than that it is mostly 5.fun.

Really fun route, esp. if you finish out left on the face. Perhaps a couple of bolts too many (great gear placements out right), but all in all, a nice route.

Fun route, but beware the loose rock to the right as you climb over the last overhang to the anchors (to the right of the last bolt). Also a large loose block right below the last bolt.

Fun route, and it makes the short hike up a little more worth it when climbed with Edges and Ledges. As mentioned before, there are a few loose rocks on this one, the loose rock near the last bolt appears to still be there and is currently marked. There are some loose rocks to the right as you move up towards the anchors as well, but they are pretty easy to avoid.
I did have a hold blow on me though right at the first bolt. It wasn't really on route per se, but I imagine I'm not the only person that has done this. When I was directly below the first bolt, and before stepping up onto the actual wall, I had my hand under the ledge down/right (should have known better, it felt a little questionable). When I leaned back a bit to re-position myself, the hold blew completely and VERY nearly sent me tumbling back down to the belay, which is at least 20 feet. Just be aware, and don't do what I did. The distance from there to the ground is enough to wreck your day.

Pretty fun route, definitely harder to decipher than its neighbors to the left and right! Was disappointed though to find a bolt near the top within a few inches of a fine looking crack.... Is this kind of convenience bolting really worth it? Gear for the crack is easy to place and bomber.
