This featureless low-angle slab is great for working those feet! Delicate smears and good balance will get you up.
The route starts on a large ledge above Boogaloo direct. Follow the obvious line of bolts between the two right-facing dihedrals.
6 bolts, rap rings on top

Looking at the face as a whole, this face route climbs between the two major lieback cracks on the upper section of Big Rock. This route is the best of the three starting at the ledge at the terminus of Boogaloo Direct. Lots 'o feet as described.

Balance is definately the key. This climb redefines the term "hold." Fun, fun, my second favorite at BR. Definately try this one!

Doug Tilleskjor and I did the FA of this route in 1969 or 1970. Fun climb.

Hey DonC.......Thank you for coming forth and sharing your knowledge of the FA of Let It Bleed. It's great that folks are sharing their knowledge and shedding some light on the history and climbers that established the climbs at Big Rock. What a great route.

My first 10+, 1975, wearing EB's! What a difference EBs made.

Great route to practice your smearing and balance. Bolts paced closer together than easier routes. Makes this feel less intimidating and more like sport climbing
