Leah climbing into the slot/offwidth section

Description 

Around the corner to the right from Cave Route is a nice, shady alcove. Above its right edge is a nice thin hands crack. CLimb this (cool) to a good hands crack (better) and up and into a slot (really damn cool). Pull around a brief roof to a good stance, and akkkkwardly pull around another roof on flared hand jams to a bolt anchor. I thought this last to be the crux, a friend who don't climb wideies thought the slot was the crux (but he fell at the upper roof). An excellent, varied and sustained line on perfect stone.

Call me a wimp, but I though this might be 5.11- at the roof. It sure is harder than most local 5.10's.

Kind of a turd compared to most of the other routes on the Bulge, and a sandbag to boot. When I did this route it was quite sandy, especially the last crux, and that big hollow flake wigged me out. The climbing is interesting though, and sustained. If you don't mind the sand(bag), go for it!

Yes it is pretty short but super fun moves and great rests. The route gobbles gear in the thin hands range. The first roof/flake/step-around is fun and not too hard. Look around…..its all there. The final bulge is the meat of the climb…….much steeper than it looks, but there are plenty of good (deep) hand jams……you will just loose your feet for a move or two. Fun route!
