A sequence of events.


This is a decent route if you're looking for a cavey tick at the grade and has lots of varied, bouldery moves on super-steep terrain.

Buzzworm is one route left of Fluff Boy, and while it lacks the perfect stone in the middle of the cave, this route has cleaned up (and gotten harder) with traffic. Two bolts close together down low in a perfectly horizontal roof mark the start.

Reef out onto a block/jug and trend generally left along hard-to-see block and pinch features. This route is very sustained, but with modern kneebar technology you may be able to cop a shake or two along the way. Expect long moves to positive holds and a nice finish on featured orange and tan rock.


10 quickdraws.

The fourth bolt badly needs a chain.
