The late Raleigh Collins at the 7th bolt of Ground...

Description 

This sustained slab route, like most of the routes on this side of Little Hunk, affords decent quality climbing and sometimes engaging moves but needs a bit more traffic to clean it up.

The 5.11 crux comes early in the vicinty of the 3rd/4th bolt but there's another tricky sequence (5.10+) at the 6th bolt and sustained 5.10 slab climbing with spaced bolts all the way to the top.

This is a technical and sustained slab route that is worthy of more attention and with more traffic it will clean up nicely (it may also make it a bit harder).


Location 

Left side of Little Hunk's west face between Official Rubber Tester and Compassion of the Elephants.


Protection 

10 bolts (5/16" and 3/8"), 2 bolt anchor/rap

An obscure but quality route that deserves more traffic.

The last bolt (the 11th) was doubled to make a rap anchor (<100 feet) some years ago when Kevin Powell and I replaced many of the bolts on Little Hunk's West face.
