Crux is moving past the first bolt. May be a good warm-up climb. Due to the quality of this route it doesn't see much traffic.

If you want to do a 5.7 look to your right to Fat Bastard. Great roof problem on jugs.


Look for three colored bolts to the right of the big roof. First bolt will be on a blank face.


According to recent photos the first bolt is no longer there leaving 2 bolts and ring anchors.

My first outdoor sport lead. Nice quick warmup for Fat Bastard.

The first bolt is in a huge detached block. I wouldn't/didn't clip it. I used some tcu's below and above it.

Huge block of rock where the first bolt is broke off today and is now laying on the bottom of the route. No one was hurt but it was a Very close call. Be mindful of what you pull and step on.

whats the route to the right of (dis)continuance. that starts easy then gets steeper and a bit harder at the top?

I believe you're asking about Fat Bastard:
It has those last two bolts that are easily Z-clipped if you're not careful and a very awkward anchor at the top once you clear the roof.
