Resting on the jugs of Groundwork.

Description 

Just right of Afterglow and left of The Put Down is this fine line, which provides an excellent warmup for the harder routes on the wall. Although still a little sandy, the route has cleaned up and gotten somewhat easier since it was bolted. Originally rated 12b, now the grade feels closer to 11d.


Protection 

9 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor

The holds are all there. It's just a pumper, but nowhere near 12a.

This is bolted really well, and it has a fixed draw so it isn't so difficult to clean. Very nice movement. Endurance is key.
