Perplexing footwork on this one... Pic by grk


The obvious sport climb up the rib/roof. Some gear is useful to get to the first bolt. Follow the rib on the left side and traverse below the roof. A few desperate slaps will set you up for pulling the bulge. A hard traverse leads back left. Get a rest and fire up the technical and pumpy finish.

"Get a rest and fire up the technical and pumpy finish" - sweet knee lock no hands rest.

My friend and I climbed this climb on the morning of Saturday 6/15/13. To make a long story short, we accidentally left a #2 (yellow) BD camalot on the small ledge right below the first bolt. This camalot was not clipped to the rope so upon completing the climb I forgot to clean it. I realized about two hours later that the cam was missing and ran back to bath rock and soloed up to the ledge to find the camalot missing.
If you found this yellow camalot and are in the need of some extra karma points please pm me. I'd really appreciate it.

This would be a tricky on-sight but easy once you know the movement.
