Ben Folsom climbing Face Shot (5.8). On the Check...


Climb up the center of the mottled face using nuts and small cams for pro and then past three nice bolts to a two bolt anchor with chains.


This route is on the nice face left of the main section of the Checkered Demon.


A set of nuts and maybe some small cams.

A nice start to this is to climb the wide crack directly below the face. Probably a little bit harder than 5.8.

Huh...when I put this up, it had just one bolt.

Yeah, three bolts now, don't know why... The whole thing would be well protected by natural gear.
