Don't Call Me Ishmael.


An overhanging route among mostly slab climbs. It has very positive holds although you may find the integrity of one or two questionable. Climb up onto a ledge, the rest of the route is then just a bolted boulder problem.


This route is on the obvious overhang to the right of all the slab routes in the lower area. It's good in case of rain.


3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

This climb would be so much better if the anchors were in a different spot. They should have been placed up and around to the right. At the current location they are difficult to clip and detract from the climb as a whole.

Fun, straight forward climb. Weird bolting choices.

I actually removed the pg13 rating, as its not needed. Safe falls

My favorite climb at Bulo. Bolts are in strange places, though. The third especially. Wondering if botching this clip would result in a deck.

Micah, did you test the fall with line out going for third?

I didn't test the fall, but it didn't feel sketchy at all while on the route.
