Description 

This is a terrific 7 bolt extension to Groundwork that skirts the awesome and huge heart shaped cobble. It is marred only by some odd bolting, for example, the only purpose of the first bolt in the cobble seems to be to provide rope drag -- skip it, its easy climbing to the next bolt, and use long draws or extensions on the first 4-5 bolts. From a hands off rest next to the huge cobble launch into a short, sequential boulder problem on bullet rock to the chains. Excellent addition to the crag.


Location 

From the chains atop Groundwork follow a line of bolts to and through the heart.


Protection 

7 bolts to chains

This is a cool extension, but still quite loose up top. Both times I went up it I knocked off baseball size rocks. I don't think it warrants a higher grade than either Ground Works or Afterglow (depending on which route you choose to climb as the start), seeing as there is a big no hands rest at the cobble.
