Description 

Pre-clip the first bolt from the boulder, and then start from the ground just left of the starting holds for 'Hot Lava Lucy". Cool lock offs on small knobs for 20 feet connects back into "Cantalope Death". A spot is nice to stop a swing in the event of a fall near the start.


Protection 

Bolts.

This is an okay route. I would recommend Hot Lava Lucy before this. A good route if your breaking into 5.12 climbing, since its basically a top rope.
