Definitely the best route on the wall, and one of the best of the grade at Bubba City!

Start with several big moves on small slopers/crimps, which lead to an overhanging section with good holds. Score a great double-handjam rest, pull an awesome move to a good pocket, and head left at the 6th bolt for the 11d finish (the right bolt line is harder). Finish on very cool white rock.


This obvious line is left of a wide crack and the climb Radial Rimmed. In the summer, it is shaded in the morning and late afternoon (the shiny white face near the top would make it hard to climb in full sun!).


8 bolts, shuts

I thought this would be a sloper slap-fest, but surprisingly there are lots of vicious crimps, especially down low. This route packs several difficult moves and few easy ones, and the exposure up top is great.
